We have a pair of citron clown gobies in both of our tanks... wonderful little fish. They were a little timid at first, but now they are out all the time, perching on rocks and corals and even sticking to the glass. They chase each other a little, but don't seem to do any harm to each other. I think it's more of a "this is my spot, you go find your own!" kind of thing. We feed ours a variety of meaty and flake foods.

Hope that helps...

Here's a pic of one of our little guys...

i had an engineer goby, but i never saw it after i put him in the tank!!! Gobies can be jumpers so you need to make sure that you have a a cover, i dont think that you need to worry about the corals eating the fish but the anenomes may pose a problem. Good luck man

The LPS shouldn't pose a problem, but a large anemone might.

Two type of gobies to be aware of are the diggers (they hide all the time)...one example of these is the Neon...the other group is the Sand Sifters. The sifters will depleat your DSB very quickly. These should be avoided if you want a functioning DSB. They are very easy to pick out...just watch them at the LFS. If they scoop sand up in their mouth, they are sifters.
