New shot of the tank with a fish. I'm gonna also probably add a goby (i forgot the name) that's about a 1/2". Want something to swim or at least hover out front. Will add the small feather duster and a small frogspawn after my lunchtime trip to the lfs.

The clown is fun still. Took off for the feeding hole when I fed him this morning. First time since he was just added yesterday and he acted like that was our routine already. I just grab a small bit of food with my aqua tweasers and stick it in the hole. He's there to meet me.

Yep. I'd agree. But....

The clown is less than an inch. The goby is about the same. At the point where I can't keep nitrates in line, the clown goes back to the lfs. I live 5 minutes away and got this "special" relationship with them.

Also, got the goby today 'cause I wanted something that would be out front and move around. The clown won't. Stays in his corner. He'll probably go back long before he grows anyway. Not too much fun so far. And maybe you're even more on target 'casue the clown may not be swimming around much 'cause there ain't much room to swim. They got some gobies at my lfs that are about a quarter of an inch long - full sized. Might be a two goby tank!

BTW - anybody named "Ray" can doubt/question me any time!

Looks good Ray! What type of goby did you get? I have a yellow and green clown gobies in my 2 1/2gal. They do not really move around much...they just "perch" on corals and rockwork, which is what makes them great for picos.

Marineland makes a 25 watt heater... I think the name of it is the Neptune. I used it in my 5 gallon betta tank, and am using it now in my 10 gallon betta tank. It may be bigger than what you want, but it is under 50 watts and has a thermostat you can control.

Love the nano BTW!!! I'd get a yellow watchman goby for sure, I just love those little guys!

Hector's Goby. He's about an inch long.

I think the clown is going back. Sits in an upper corner and waddles. The goby sits out in the open near the bottom. I like that better. Beautiful colors too.

It's in my tank right now so I can't say for sure how long it is, but it appears to be about 8-9 inches long. I guess that is probably bigger than what you were looking for.
