yeah but be aware that even though the dottybacks are small they will be aggressive so i would add it last to the tank.

i always get that fish confused looks so much like a dottyback lol. I havent had one so i am not too sure says minimum of 30 gals might want to reconsider. liveaquaria sets pretty legit parameters for the minimum a fish need to be sustained. whats your equipment?

My Longnose Hawkfish in my 90 gallon reef leaves my Peppermint Shrimp alone. He even lets my TINY Scarlet Skunk Cleaner Shrimp (less than 1 inch) clean him. Based on my readings, I have concluded I have a mentally insane hawkfish So I would go with no longnose.

I would recommed the Green or Citrinis Clown Goby. I am getting a green one for my future 29 Biocube

Hope that longnose works for you. I think they are interesting fish. Looks like a nice stocking list too.
