Yeah. Scratch out the catalina. They are cold water gobies and will most likely die when kept in warm water reef environments for too long. I dont want none of that -__-

Now im getting some discrepancy between sources on the yellow watchman goby. Some say a min of 30G and a min of 10G. Can any experts here verify which is correct? I fear its the 30G lol.


So.. i found this for the lighting. And i think im going with a 10G and i'm going to be doing a drop-off design.

Here's the lighting: Current USA 24" Nova Extreme T-5 Fixture 2x24W 10K/460NM, (1124) - AquaCave

And here if more information on the drop-off concept for anyone who wants to take a look at it:
MEW - Rimless NPS Drop-off 10G - Nano-Reef.com Forums

However, will this lighting be enough for zoos, mushrooms, birdsnest, and a few other softies? I would think so since the tank isn't very tall.. 12".. but then again im really not an expert in the light department by any means. So i need some expert opinions. Thanks.


Also, it's cheap.. but we're talking about a 10G tank here lol.. Think this heater will be sufficient for heating a 10G reef tank?

Too much light would be lost with that extra 4" overhang. I would just go with a 24g or a 29g kit. T5 is cheaper in the long run with power consumption, but they are pretty even when you need new bulbs if you order online. When you buy the fixture, PC is cheaper, T5 is only cheaper if you get a hunk of crap such as an Odyssea. Just don't order the same bulbs as the stocks that are in it as stock bulbs tend to lack. Yellow watchmans are fine in a 10g as they aren't very active.

Thanks for the info thom, and thanks for the welcoming TC.

And yeah, the PJ cardinals don;t really move around much.. but not my type of fish. The yellow watchman is my main pick right about now.

So, I was just looking on LA, and these gobies look really cool:
Cave Transparent Goby
Red Head Goby
Red Spotted Goby
Orange Spotted Shrimp Gobies
Wheeler's Watchman Goby

They seemed to stick out, imo. Out of those, the wheeler watchman and the cave transparent were my favorite. Just thought I'd share.

Thanks for the links A1! I was looking at some of those recently, but ig uess i missed the wheelers watchman goby. I like the look of that one alot! I may end up getting that one.. actually lol.

It's going to be a battle between a yellow watchman goby, wheelers watchman goby, or either the green, black, or citron goby.

Gonna be a tough call tho lol.
