Clown gobies are usually cheap and small.

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

I do have another question. I am thinking about buying this

BioCube 29 Package Deal - Aquarium Filtration Upgrades & Supplies

It has a media basket and a fuge too! I was thinking on just getting the media basket though as I can't find a light to put on the tiny fuge. The only one I found is like $60!! If I just put in the media basket what else can I put in the fuge spot? I was thinking of putting a cheap biocube skimmer in the far right compartment since I don't use a heater. Or does it go in with the return pump? I'm confused AGAIN LOL
The skimmer can go in the right chamber. I wouldn't get the fish saver unless u need it but I'm pretty sure all of the newer cubes have it built in. Also I have had my biocube skimmer running for almost two weeks and I havnt skimmed anything it's bubbling correctly but nothing is building up I'm leaving it in till sat if not going to try n fit the aqualife 115 back in it was working great

I just purchased the fuge and media basket from someone on the forum. I don't have jumping fish so I won't miss the fish saver. LOL

So the biocube skimmer isnt generating anything at all? Is it possible to adjust that model? I have also heard of adding extra airstones to produce more bubbles.

I'm not sure about moding it but the airstones for it are 4 bucks a piece it recommends changing them monthly seems like a lot of money to keep spending for something that does not work very well I don't understand how it really takes in new water

Well it's been awhile since I posted here LOL. Since I will be stocking the 125g soon I figured I'd finish stocking the cube.

I now have a scooter dragonet, a citron goby, a pair of misbar oscellalris and the darn tiny candy cane goby.

I want to put in a midas blenny and a warpaint clown goby.

Sound ok? The candy cane might be moving to a pico tank but he's got 0 bioload and is never out so I figure he doesn't really count. hehe

I'm thinking 6 fish in a 29g is the top limit for stocking level, am I right?

I'd say 6 is good yupp, the clown gobys might fight though, you should really only have one.

Hmm I thought he'd be ok. The citron is VERY laid back, he lets the other fish sit on his head sometimes. I've seen the scooter on his head, and the one clown on the scooters head. They make like a fishie pyramid. LOL

But seriously, you think they'd fight? The warpaint clown goby is pretty small, maybe into the pico with the candycane?

The warpaint clown goby might be okay in the pico, but my LFS tells me that you cannot put two clown gobys together unless they are a mated pair, and two different colored ones can't be a mated pair. It is also very hard to pair them up since it's hard to tell the sex.

I haven't done any personal research on this but my LFS specializes in only SW and is owned by one guy who has only one other employee, both are very knowledgeable in SW. (just to state that it's a reliable source haha)

You should start a thread about it maybe.
