Firefish Gobies

Would a red firefish be ok with a purple firefish in the same tank?

Could depend on what sized tank and if they were introduced at the same time. W/that said, QTing two of these in a smaller tank could be a problem in the first place.

How about a mated pair of either instead of one of both? I think the purple is much prettier, IMO.

Also, some people think because they are simliar they will school together....not likely. I had 2 reds and they always hung out side by side, I loved to watch them. Until one disappeared one day

I had a purple FF and a fire goby in my 125 reef. They lived in the same home for 6-8 months then one day the PFF started beating up the FG. They lived in different homes after that. IMO I would not put them in the same tank unless its a large tank with a lot of LR for hiding places.
