Quarantine for clown gobie?

I think my next purchase will be a yellow clown/coral gobie. I've been reading up and it sounds like most folks on the net recommend a rather short - if any - quarantine for them... assuming the QT is bare and doesn't have anything in it to make them feel "at home."

For those of you that quarantined a clown gobie... would you recommend the full 4+ weeks, or go with a shorter 2-3 day period just to observe for a few days - assuming the fish looks healthy at the store and isn't kept in a ichy tank to start with.

Thanks!

Full quarantine. You can easily get fake corals made from resin that would be inert.

Duh... fake coral. I never thought about that! I have to say, I was a little nervous about a short quarantine time, but from what I was reading it was making sense.
