Thought so, i was making sure it wasnt because he having a hard time breathing. My six line keeps roaming by him and staring at him when he does it. The wrasse goes away then comes back close to the goby and swims slow or stops.

LOL. That went on with my goby and blenny for about a week or so. It only happens ocassionally now. It's really funny to watch though, goby acts like he's all tough and then nothing.

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

Lol i saw the six line playin with him and the goby gettin super p.o and im watchin like.. Dont fight.. Dont fight and while the goby is goin crazy opening his mouth the six line acts like nothin happened. But just to make sure the goby wasnt struggling i asked about it here, cause the six line wasnt too phased.

I guess it's a defensive thing. My transparent cave goby does the same, usually when the hawkfish is eying him lol.

I cant comment on the goby but my damsel seems to love spraying sand everywhere... Weird fish he goes down in the sand and creates a storm. Then likes to hang out in his newly created hollow of cave.

What he is doing is stirring up food from the sand.Clowns do that alot to.Watch closely and you will see him eat after he has stirred up the sand.

Not sure not in the dt right now.
I've had no problems with my little yellow damsel and aggression until today when I added a regal tang and a bengai cardinal. Little bugger tried beating both up. He's living in my quarantine now and is being given to a friend which Just loves damsels
On a side note still no issues with domino damsel.

Anyways sorry to hijack thread

Damsels are all aggressive eventually,my local LFS sells them for $2.00 each since he takes them back from people because of the problems they become.

Speaking of gobies will i be able to reaquascape with a diamond goby in the tank? Im scared lil man might jump out and introduce himself to carpet as soon as he sees a opening due to him being scared.
