Engineer goby/convict goby

Any one have problems with these eating your other fish? Any new fish that I put in the tank and tries to hide in the rocks disappears.

My engineer goby is a sweetheart. I have clown gobies in with him and have had no issues at all. he is about 5 inches long now, way bigger than the gobies and yet he runs away from them if they come near him. lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Mine is bigger then that. He was fine untill I switched to a bigger tank. Now every fish I have put in there that is smaller then him has disappeared. So far I'm up to 4 green chromis which only took 3 days. A royal gamma and one of the bar gobies I got yesterday. I was thinking it may be a hitcher crab but there going way to fast for a crab.

Mine was about 7 in, and never even noticed most small fish. I had 3 neon gobies, and they would practically sit on it, but he never really cared. I would look for something else, before I blame him. When I had him, the only thing he ever did was gulp down one of my sexy shrimp.

The only other fish in the tank is a wwatchman goby pistol shrimp pair. They stay on the other side of the tank in the area that is more sand. I can't think of anything else it could be.
I do have a red serpent start but, I can't see it eating fish that fast. One here or there yeah.
