Thinking of getting a yellow watchman goby

Ok folks.

Tell me if this is a bad idea or not.

I am thinking of getting one or two yellow watchman gobies for my 80 gal. The LFS has them and they appear to be 2" in size or less.

As of today the tank has been up for 7 months or so with live rock and a DSB.

I saw one the other day and it looks like a cool fish... I have a watchman goby and it is fun to watch perch on rocks and hunt... It will sit still and watch your every move..

The yellow watchmans are cool!! I've had a couple in the past, I think they will do fine in your tank.

Here is what I'm thinking of getting...at some point in the future...

Blue spotted jawfish...

I have a pink spotted watchman goby and he is doing great...wanted a yellow, but the guy wouldnt sell it as it was in his display tank. The spotted is fun to watch too, we call him the grumpy old man because of his expression.

I would probaly do two if they are being kept together now. I have had a couple...but it was only one at a time , I assume you can find pairs. What would be really cool, is if you can find out what shrimp is associated with them and get one of those too.

Ok, I got them today and put them in my q-tank.

Here are a few pics.

This is the first of the two. Its not the clearest pic.




This pic is of the second and smallest of the two. Those LARGE pvc pipes you see are 1" in size.
