I've had so many suggestions but, really, no idea. I'm searching now. Blennys/gobys arent jumpers are they?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Depends, if you like firefish they seem to be almost guaranteed jumpers though. Luckily I have a top though

Is a starry blenny a good one? I see you have one.

I have a glass canopy but there's an open section for the hob filter so I def can't use any jumper gobys' or blennys'

Look into getting a yellow clown goby, they are very cute and perfect for a nano. I love how they perch on the rock/glass/corals.

They can be jumpers like corey said...especially when they are new to a tank and scared. Find a temporary lid for the tank until the fish is more used to it maybe...we just made our tops our of small holed chicken fencing i guess you'd call it haha.

I'm getting excited again, I have anew game plan. I'll just wait on the clowns and get my other two fish first. I'll be at one store tomorrow but I know he doesnt have any blennys. I might have to make the 2 hour trip then.

unless her sandbed is quite deep a jawfish is out. My starry blenny is wonderful, personality and aesthetically-wise. Catalina gobies are coldwater fish so unless you did a coldwater tank which wouldn't be compatible with the others it's a no too..

Clown gobies are nice though!

I have a standard depth bed, maybe 2 inches tops. Too bad about the catalina, its beautiful. Do blennies really pick at corals? I'm more about the corals than the fish aspect. Liveaquaria has the blennies as being reef safe
