Blue acan eating green clown goby

I'm getting a blue acan in the mail soon, but I just found something that says acans can eat gobies. Is this true? Btw, I have a 3G jbj pico, and a small green clown goby. Thanks for any help!

Ok -- thanks! The happycoral site says large acans sometimes eat small perching fish like gobies, but it sounded pretty sketchy to me to.

No problem! I have 4 acans that are always hungry and my blenny (3") perches on them all the time. They just shrink down.

There is more going on in that guy's tank than he let on or knew about. No way could a coral like that catch a fish. What probably happened was the fish died or was dying, and then it fell into the coral.

Scary! Sorry about your goby... I have a green clown goby and a rhodactis mushroom just like yours. Hopefully that never happens!
