Fish ideas?

Hi all, I have the normal clowns, gobies, tangs etc. during the day my tank is flowing with fish. At night they all hide in the rocks.

Can you recommend reef safe nocturnal fish that wil be like a shift rotation with my current fish? Preferably ones that would glow neon like my corals under led lights?

A beautiful nocturnal fish that hugs the reef is a six line wrass or even try a neon blue goby.

What size tank do you have? And, if you can, what is your full stocklisting?

You said you have a 'goby' and then later you say 'knight watch goby'. Is that 1 or 2 gobies? Can we see a picture of your tank? It usually helps, knowing if they are overstocked or not.

BTW, awesome coral choices

I do have 2 gobies. 1 is a small guy, can't remember the tyep of goby sand sifts REALLY well the other is a bigger knight watch goby.

I'll post a pic of my tank now from my phone albeit not the best quality.

And thanks for the kudos on the corals! I keep watching for colorful, affordable flowy corals and buying these in frags makes them affordable so over time they will fill out my rocks

I think cardinals are nocturnal ...,but they just look more like a FW fish than SW IMO...
I don't think 6 lines are...they make cocoons at night to sleep in

I assume the goby is a diamond watchman goby I'm getting one soon I really like them.

I don't really see a whole lot of corals... But I agree with you on the "soft corals are better than stony ones" position

The corals don't pop out in the picture on my cell phone, I guess if I really played with the settings I could make them appear more; they are mostly smaller right now cuz I bought the $10 and $20 frags, so as they grow I've positioned them to look nice.

What do you think of a lemon merengue wrasse?

And YES it is a diamond watchman goby! Good call
