Was at the lfs near me buying cichlid food and found a cool looking fish. BUT I made a mistaske in buying it. LOL It's a convict goby and he is about one inch long. After I got home I looked him up and found out he is gonna have to go into the 125g when he gets bigger. they can get to a foot long live aquaria says. :-O

But I have him for now going in this 20g. He is acclimating right now. Here are some pictures, he was extremely active in the store and here so I have high hopes for him.

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

Cool beans. (Got to watch those impulse buys). LOL

I am picking up a couple of free corals this evening. A guy on the local reef club site posted that he wanted to help some beginners and I figured I fit the bill so I sent him a PM. Turns out I know him (sorta). He is a competitor of ours. LOL Anyway, he said he would pick out a couple of nice ones for me. Can't beat that with a stick.

Are you sure on the size? The only one I could find on Live Aquaria was a Black Barred Convict Goby and it says "Max Size 1-1/2"

You are absolutely right. Man, I can't believe I would question Carey when it comes to looking up fish on line. LOL I appreciate you setting me straight.

Yep, it was $4.99 and so active i couldnt resist. I kinda figured it would get larger but not that large! lol

he is happily swimming around now hanging with the fangtooth blenny, they are the only two "swimmers" in the tank so I figure there is plenty of room. Girl at the LFS did say to get multiples though, and after researching it says that as well. Should I worry about just having one? I don't want to make it unhappy or anything. lol
