Everything should be fine. Relax and take a deep breath. As long as you keep an eye on parameters for the next couple of weeks and have enough well-gaed SW on hand to do changes if needed, you will be just fine. Good call on adding more LR

Sorry to hear about your clown goby. Feed these fish can present a challenge as they are often times intimidated and "bullied" out of food by tank mates. They are very timid fish.

Sorry about the goby, Jesus and I had the same problem. We both went through a couple until we bought the ones that would eat. I have a little green one now, he's no bigger than a babies toe, but he's a piggy.

he just wouldnt eat no matter what i did. i am thinking of getting a shrimp goby/psitol shrimp pair, but im goin to wait awhile and see what happens with my tank. you think the green goby is a better addition than the yellow? i dont want to add something that wont eat, i dont trust the lfs that i go to to tell me what its eating since theyve mislead me b4.... thanks for your concern..
