Well, what do you have in mind? Do you have any gobies already or bottom dwellers?

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

I have a pink spotted watchman, very nice fish, but he doesnt sift a grain of sand. lol The diamond back gobies DO sift sand but I hear they do it excessively. Have you taken a peek on Aquarium Fish: Tropical Freshwater Fish and Saltwater Fish for Home Aquariums or for ideas Saltwater Reef Fish, Marine Fish, Reef Aquarium Coral, Saltwater Supplies & more - Aquatic Connection Live They have some decent selection and it can give you some ideas...

I've got a Diamond, and for the 1st (3) days, it was a desert sandstorm in the tank, but now its all settled, and I can't even tell other than a tiny poof that he is even sifting.

I think I am going to get one. Good to know my sand is usually blowing around already because my turbo snails fall over and can't right themselves so I have to go into the tank and flip them over. How do these things survive in the wild? LOL.

I do use sand and the very top layer of the sand was extremely fine, and like I said, it was a mess for about 3 days or so, then after he got it all turned over, even with the addition of the powerheads, the sand that he sifts is almost not noticible. I will point out however that my LR does accumulate more dust than without him, but the PH's could be part of that as well. I got both the goby and PH's at nearly the same time.

OK if I don't get the UV is there something I can do to help get the greenish tint out of my water or is a UV the only way to do it
