What do you think of a lemon merengue wrasse?

And YES it is a diamond watchman goby! Good call
LOL as soon as I am ready I'm totally gonna raid the $20-$30 section at my LFS, maybe order from Atlantic Sea Farms since shipping is only $20 and they have really cheap beginner corals.

Just googled the LMW. They are REALLY cool looking! Where did you hear about them? It said that they are coral safe, but may eat small invertebrates, just a warning

Thanks about the goby! I saw one on YouTube and said "I have to own this" LOL. Plus my rock scape is perfect for one, since I have a bunch of low crannies. I have seen my BG Chromis dart out of them it's hilarious.

I would get a neon goby, but it would just become a future meal for my future hawkfish

OHHHH the neon goby looks NICE! That won't have an issue with the other gobies I have?

I saw the wrasse at random at my LFS; I might go pick it up tonight. The only small inverts I have are the blue hermits and a few turbo snails, but none of them are super small.

You thank the Lemon Wrasse and neon goby are nocturnal and will swim around at night? My tank looks EMPTY at night; ALL my fish hide in the rocks lol

And the corals all glow neon looking, it would be awesome to have like a neon party going on at night.

The neon gobies are VERY small, thats my only concern. Same reason I'm not getting a green clown goby. I would either never see them or they would get eaten by the longnose hawkfish. I would do a TON of research on the LMW. Just in case

How long has your tank been established. I'm sure there's a reason for it; Lights too bright maybe? I'm sure someone with experience can chime in. All of my fish come out searching for food all day long and then as halides go off actinics stay on they sink down a little then when lunars are on they are GONE lol.

If you look at the pic I posted you can see most of my fish there, but at night it looks empty other than teh beautiful glowing corals.

Well, I'm not too worried just yet, I work 2nd shift, and I have a feeling that they are out all day. Just seems whenever I come around they come and say hi for about 5 minutes and then go behind the rocks...

I'm sure I'm just crazy.

I bet thats it; just pure bad luck on the timing.
