Well, while we are waiting for something that might best replace our flasher wrasse (carpet surfer), I convinced my mother to let me get a goby for our 20g reef. Go to the store and there is exactly one goby for sale- a runty little yellow clown goby. So it has been in the tank for a couple of days now and sort of hops from place to place- it has been eating squid and Cyclop-Eeze, and at night it roosts on top of the thermometer.
I have read different things about this fish- for example, one poster on a different board said that when they paired up they began laying eggs on the corals and harming them, while another said they've never been a problem. Some people say they dine on polyps and some say they don't, but the polyps in question seem to be SPS
, which isn't a big deal with me since the only SPS
I have are a pair of M. digigata, which are in too high-flow an area for the goby to wander.
I've had a little difficulty finding anything else about it though. Anyone have some information to throw at me? Should I buy an acropora skeleton for it? The goby is a little thin but since it's eating ravenously I have hope for it.
