I find information often leads to acceptance. I used this trick to cure my baby sisters' fear of spiders. Learning more about a creature, why it's shaped and behaves the way it does can lead to a greater understanding and appreciation of the creature.

Movies often use a visually "strange" creature, and add a bunch of misinformation to make it scary. The result is culturally we have become repulsed and scared by a lot of very interesting and facinating creatures.

I'm not disagreeing with you, but something that can crawl up my leg and bite me and possibly put me in the hospital, scares me. Mainly Black Widows and Brown Violin Recluse spiders.

Depending on sandbed depth, the yellow watchman or shrimp goby is a great and hardy fish, but it requires a DSB. Avoid the diamond watchman in this size of tank.

Depending on coral choice, you also may want to consider a yellow coral goby - the yellows are pretty hardy (if they eat), the greens and other colors not so much. However, if you plan on going SPS, you may want to skip these, as they will nip at SPS corals.

The firefish gobies are also nice top swimmers, but require a cover as they tend to go carpet surfing.

Some species of flasher wrasses are a good choice once the tank is established and has a nice pod population.

I'm liking the Gobies more and more. What do you guys think of the Catalina? I read something about it liking cooler waters though? Between 60-70. That seems really low!

How many Gobies should be safe in the 65g? The pink bar Goby is great looking too. When you guys say something to keep them from jumping the tank would a canopy be ok or are you thinking glass lids?

Catalina Island is off the coast of California and is surrounded by cool ocean water. The water temperature around the island ranges frm ~64 to ~73 degrees, so unless you are doing a cool water tank, you should forget about this goby.
