could i add a pair of neon gobies if i already have a yellow watchman goby, a yellow tang, and two ocelleris clowns? I wouldn't want to add a pair of neon gobies at this point if they were going to get attacked by the other tank mates.

I have gone through two so far. Unfortunately there small size and curiosity makes them apt to disappear into intakes overflow boxes etc. They are also quite short lived at a year or two.

Good candidate for a nano, fuge or even a qt since they are inexpensive and apt to rid any quarantined fish of parasites.

I have been looking into getting a mated pair of these, but LiveAquaria says that they need to be fed every day! Is this true in your experience?

thanks...

I got the neon blue cleaner gobies. Not sure they are remoras. Anyway, they're small and won't do much to the bio-load. A mated pair would be ideal IMO.

Mine are feed with the others. Sometimes daily. Sometimes every other day. I've left'm for a week without problems.

I was just asking about Remora's b/c they act and look similar to the goby's right down to the stripes Very different fish though.

Should be fine. I have all those same fish- except I have a maroon clown.

I feed about every other day. They do have big appetites for such tiny fish. I think your current feeding schedule will be enough.

It had been in my main tank for about 2-3 weeks when I saw it cleaning for the first time.
Happy reefing!
