Just thought that I had to put in my $0.02 and say an engineer goby is great. I also have a pink spot goby that sifts sand all day long.

The rainfords is nice I like!!!!! I have considered an engineer after seeing yours and nunu/gboys. I was really wanting something eye catching but small, sand sifting probably isn't good as I have alot of coral on the sand. On a side note, I found my lunar eclipse zoas tonight during water change. They fell in a hole in the rock and I haven't seen them in months but there they were alive and well.

So water change is done, I decided to take my canister off the system as it really doesn't do much that my skimmer can't handle. All my fish are dripping back in and I can't wait!!!!!!!

I am thinking either a fire fish or engineer, the mandarin is a must but once I get a fuge going. I plan to upgrade to a 75 once my basement is reno'd but that will be some time so I'm gonna rig up a HOB fuge till then cause I really want a mandarin lol. The 55 will then become a big sump and I will probably get a frag tank going also. How's all your fish doing? I hear coral growth isn't really happening, just be patient dude once things settle the growth will happen. It hasn't been that long since you guys started, I bet if you compare pics from when you started to recent pics you will notice some growth.

Ya there is some growth, but not a ton. Its fine though, i got into the hobby for the fish and they are all super cool so i love it kd i think you should get a goby! Haha not a huge fan of firefish, but thats just my opinion.

You just say that cause you have an engineer lol, you do realize the fire fish is a goby right? Honestly I don't know what to get, I know I want a mandarin and may just opt for that if it's eating prepared foods.
