Neon Gobies are great!

I bought a neon goby and recently I put him in my main after QT'ing. These fish, pound for pound, are some of the most personable and least shy! Three days ago he started cleaning other fish including my Y. tang and even my maroon clown. The fish seem to tolerate him much better than the cleaner shrimp. Neon goby=Little fish=little bio-load+great personality and symbiotic behavior=awesome!!! If your looking for something interesting and/or you have a smaller tank check these out. On top of all that they are easily bred in aquariums and many that are available are tank raised

The yellow tang I have enjoys this fish so much it's like I installed a spa for him/her! It is very fun to watch the goby clean the tang like one of those fish you see on sharks. I really like this fish.

Absolutely. As I said most are aquacultured and readily accept frozen, flake food, etc. On top of that, IME, they will readily clean certain fish often kept- mostly larger fish ie. Tangs and occasionally my Maroon Clown.

They get big is all that I know and are really not very aquarium suitable from what I have heard. I think fishsupply.com has some.

Absolutely untrue! They only grow to 2" max. As I said they are commonly aquacultured, hardy, and readily accept prepared foods along w/ setting up cleaning stations.

"Gobies may sometimes attempt jump out. Prefer presence of substrate. Gobiosoma oceanops (Jordan 1904), the Neon Goby. Very popular, and renowned for its hardy attributes, the Neon Goby is a colourful addition to almost all tanks. If provided with plenty of shelter, this peaceful fish will happily mate and spawn in a well-maintained aquarium. Neon gobies will often set up a 'station' and keep fish clean of parasites and dead scales."
