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

I wouldn't rush into getting the Rainfordi Goby until you have some sort of filamentous algae present in the tank. Also they are very doctile fish so I wouldn't plan to add anything to aggressive with it.

I plan on as peaceful as possible like the goby, a cleaner shrimp and maybe a sexy shrimp. Maybe a hermit. It's all up in the air till I start cycling.

Speaking of.. How long does filamentous algae take to set in?

Like everything in this hobby, it is a very simple answer. About as long as a piece of string.

Not going to lie I had to look that one up. LOL can't remember hearing it before. In that case, what are some telltale signs it has set in?

It may not take long. Any kind of hair/grass looking algae. They seem to graze on it though mine sifts the sand a little more then I see him pick at the algae.
