I am a newbie and bought a orange diamond, he has been a blast to watch but the sand is still kicked up a little, patience is key with it. He is becoming a pig and will almost eat from my dropper when I put food near his burrow. He got sick of hermit crabs getting in to his burrow so he barricaded the entrance with shells! So entaining to watch such a little dude with a big personality

I am a little biased but I would give him a 9,only because of the sand disturbance irritating me. Bur I've been told that'll get better with time

Well I can't give a good answer since I only know what I've researched between the two, but my understanding is that the watchman isn't a outgoing fish (wont be out side his burrow a ton aside from eating) as to where my diamond goby is always out and about of the burrow.

So if you want one you can watch most, of guess the diamond over watchman

I'm asking a lot of questions because I'm going Dow to my LFS today and will reserve him and pick him up in a day or two. Im getting my anemone today and the goby will be next

Just a warning about the anemone (I just read that it's a 30 gallon tank), they get really large, I had one in my 28 gallon and had to remove it because it got very large very quickly and ended up killing alot of my other corals, it even killed one fish before I could get it moved.
