Sixline

I know there's a lot of subjectivity, but am curious whether a sixline wrasse would work in my 30g with Ocellaris, Coral Beauty & Yellow Watchman?

They bury in sand right? I have a 3" sand bed, but about 1/2 the beds covered with rock & corals.

Thanks

No they don't burrow in the sand ,they make cocoons to sleep in..
Not sure i'd put one in a 30 though..I think it'd be OK,,but they are fast zippy little fish and i know mine covers every inch of my tank constantly ...

Mine is all over the tank too. Didn't know about the cocoons though. No wonder I have never been able to figure out where he sleeps. LOL What should I be looking for? I just figured he found a nice little cave on the back side of the rock where I could see.

Wow. Very interesting. Nice to learn some new info about my fish. I have been going for just over 2 months now and the biggest thing I have learned is that I don't know anything. LOL

Not an expert and I have limited time with mine but in the 2 months we have had him he has been a great addition. My wife says he is her favorite. We started with a pair of clowns. Then we added him along with a fire shrimp. It wasn't until he started darting all over the tank that our clowns started coming out of the corner of the tank. He drew them out and now they are everywhere.

May pick on your goby,but i had mine for over 6 years and when i had a clown goby with him, he never bothered it...Every fish is different and i never kept one in a tank smaller than 75 gallons ...They can be aggressive ,but shouldn't bother the clown or angel,,may be the opposite actually ..

My goby rarely goes beyond his burrow, and otherwise very peaceful tank. Are they jumpers?

I had planned on a diamond goby as my last fish. Should I be rethinking that? Since I added the 6 line I have added three blue/green chromis and a Kole Yellow Eye and the 6 line has never bothered anything in my tank.
