Goby & Blenny Tank? Anyone do that before?

So with my upcoming 60g rimless build I need to get information straight.
The 60g will be a cube tank, 24 X 24 X 24 drilled so this looks like the perfect micro fish tank!

BUT I want to have all gobies and blennies. Maybe another one or two of something other than blennies and gobies. I don't want anything over 2 inches really, I may not even put the b&w clowns in the 60g.

So the big question is how many of each can I get? I have a couple clown gobies together in my 20g and they are fine. Anyone hear of any aggression issues with multiples? I won't be getting more than one of each type but I want a ton of these little guys.

if you have any thoughts please post back This is a vital point in my build as it will dictate the whole tank and the feel of it.

Oh, and if anyone knows of any tiny fish that school let me know! That would be awesome.

thanks everyone!

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

Just saw these the other day, and it says they school! I think they are pretty cool http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...691&pcatid=691

I would get a trio of bangaii cardnals, but they might be too big for your micro tank!

My blennies do spin around each other occasionally. My gobies don't. Different mixes might be different. But I agree, they are both among my favorite class of fish. I didn't do well with the cardinals.

Now that would come as a surprise after adding five of them to your tank.

Can't have jumpers. :-( No top it's a rimless starfire glass tank.

Not a big fan of those bangaii fish, too sationary for me. LOL

I'm in the middle of my research for this tank's stocking, I have a steno pad to keep track of each fishes attributes as well as dietary considerations.

Unless someone comes along and can present a case for NOT going with a 90% goby/blenny mix I will move forward with my plan.

I'll go post my list in my 60g build thread.
