Gobys aggresive???

So I was wanting to do a smaller SW reef tank say 30g at the most with several small reef safe fish! I loved several gobys that I saw on live aquaria and they all were rated as easy/beginner fish that were peacefull! however when I was experimenting with AQ advisor they said that different gobys should not be kept together or they may fight aggresivly! So are they agressive towards each other or would it be ok to keep a few together???

just make sure there different shapes, colors and sizes. i read alot that gobys that look alike will tend to fight over territory. ive never had 2 at a time so i only know what ive read. i hope this helps

A goby's aggression is basically it opening it's mouth in a manacing way and thats it. lol I plan on adding a yellow clown goby to my 20g that already has a green goby.

I also had a diamond back goby and a pinkspotted watchman in my 25g together for a few days and they had no issues at all.

Just keep the shapes and colors different and I think you'll be fine.

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