I was always under the impression that gobis destroy the sand bed by eating all the good critters that help keep the sand bed healthy.

They don't go that deep. When I still had my yellow watchman I could still see several oxygen free zones in the sandbed going strong.

My sifters only work like the top half inch of sand so no worries there. i do have a goby, called the evil goby, cause he constantly dumped sand on my corals until they would just die. I now have my corals higher up to avoid that problem.

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

When I first put him in I had a day of slightly cloudy water because he was stirring things up but now the fine particles are in a filter sock and it's clear as can be. He did spit a mouthful on some zoa's but I blew the sand off with a baster.

My goby caused chaos for the first 48 hours, there was sand everywhere and he piled up loads outside his burrow! My sand is spotless now and it looks very natural as a fish created the landscape, not me!
