I heard they can be bad for a tank. But he's pretty cool!

The reason people say theyre not suitable for reef is because they like to pick up sand and drop them on corals (especially the ones kept on the sandbed). I never had a problem with my diamond goby.

Looks nice how old is the tank? They need a well populated refugium and 2-3 inches of sand...

Whats your other stock?

I have had the tank for a year but slowly upgraded from a 14 gal biocube, to a 20 gal long, now a 29 gal.
I have a clarkii clown, 3 damsels, 1 chromis, 1 six line wrasse, 1 pajama cardinal, And that goby,

I also have assorted corals, mushrooms, frogspawn, Zoas, and colt coral

Thats a little overstocked but aslong as you do weekly wc you can do it. I think you are gonna be fine then if its been up for a year, again love the fish!
