I think I may have my first Impulse buy ....
I went to my LFS
and saw this fish and absolutely loved it.
I acclimated him properly and put him in the tank. My lonely Clown was quick to investigate and went right over to the Goby to check him out. The Goby seems to fit right in because he went straight to the sand and started digging in ... here's my issue ...
I've now read that he needs a 50 gallon tank minimum and eats the microfauna that lives in the sand bed as well as frozen and prepared food (I saw him eat mysis at the LFS
). Well my tank is only 29gallons and while I do have a nice DSB
, I don't know if in the long run this tank size will be sufficient for him to live? And a smaller problem that I'm now having is my tank is one HUGE cloud of sand dust. This guy eats so much sand it's incredible!!!!
What do I do? I have a buddy that has a 110gallon that may be willing to take him, but I think he may already have one and I don't know how they do in pairs!
