Lol, I love it when people get new fish, it is like getting a new fish yourself (for me at least )!

So far no fish have bothered the new goby. he didn't eat though so I will keep an eye on him. He's supposed to be a sand sifter but he is chilling out on my mag float and on the powerhead. lol

Here's my new guy

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

Thanks. part of the reason I got him was he isnt your everyday goby. I also saw him two weeks ago at the lfs and asked about him. I then went home and researched him in case I went back to the store soon and he was still there. And lo and behold there he was today when I went in for some filter media. LOL
He is mostly a sand sifting goby who eats from the sandbed. I am a little worried that my tank doesnt have enough life for him to survive but I think he should be ok. The tank is about 8 months old so it should be nourishing enough.

Thanks for following still!

Yep, your tank seems to be pretty established so I wouldn't worry too much. Sand-sifting Gobies are fun to watch!

Got some new goodies! lol

Went to my reef club meeting last night which was held at a store.

I ended up with 7 new frags. The store even had a 3 for $10 rack!!! Got 3 ricordias, 2 zoos, a red monti and a blue sympodium. I am very excited about the sympodium, I have been wanting one forever but all the other stores had it for over $50 at least so for $20 I got one. It's small but it will grow.

The goby has settled in and has his own little burrow, I think he may have hooked up with my pistol shrimp as well! I actually saw the pistol yesterday, first time in like 6 months. Overall the tank is doing well and I'm pleased.

OOps, I don't have pictures yet! LOL I'll get a few shots and then post them.

Our reef club is about to have it's annual maga frag swap. They rent out the Georgia World Congress Center. I was supposed to help out with it which would have gained me a bunch of free frags but I just found out my daughter will be home on leave from the Navy for the first time in 1-1/2 years. No doubt which I will choose but I am sure going to hate to miss the frag meet.
