Whitest sand I've ever had...

I'm blown away. I added a tiny sand sifting goby to my tank and he literally cleans the entire sand bed daily. He never stops working and my sand looks AMAZING! Why has it taken me 6 years to discover the wonders of the goby???

a little orange spot goby, maybe 1.5 inches long. Just a little guy. Cool to watch too, he makes little caves in the sand to sleep in then fills them up and makes another somewhere else. Very cool little fish!

That's cool, I'm always looking to add a goby to my tank. I haven't found the right one for me yet, I'm gonna research this one. They are so fun to watch!

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

Do you guys have a problem with sand in the water column though? My only concern is that sand will get all over my corals and what not.

This can happen even without sand sifters. They shouldn't be so violently plucking in the sand for this to occur unless they are building a pile of sand in the middle of a powerhead's flow.
