I think the YWG and the hi fin should be fine. The YWG is generally a chill fish so he doesnt move around alot while the hi fin should be quite active.

If you are thinking about a two spot goby i would pass on that one. needs an established sandbed to eat and are generally very difficult to keep.

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

Okay so
1 occ. Clown
1 bangaii cardinal
1 gramma
1 YWG
1 high fin red banded goby? Nunu agree?
1 scissortail dartfish

Everybody like this one? Haha!
Also, we are planning on buying the live rock in the next week or so, anything special we should know how to do? Transporting it, rock work ideas, etc! We are planning on 30 lbs now, then maybe some baserock later on! Sorry SM! We definatly didnt mean to!

Just transport the rock submerged in salt water, so bring some buckets with you when you pick it up.

make sure the rock doesn't have aipastia like said before and there is noa lgae or anything that doesn't look "right" to you. A good deal is nice but not if you are gonna have problems with it in the future. Go to your lfs and look at what their LR looks like if you need to.

Ask the guy if he can give you the water it's in. or since the die off isn't really an issue since you'll be cycling, you can wrap each rock with newspaper soaked from his tank and transport it that way.
