I just got a pair of neon blue gobies. The color is nice, they do well w/the coral, and best of all, they're cleaners. I've understand they do similar work to the cleaner wrasse and will clean other fish. So far, I've seen no cleaning, but the goby did try to suck on one of my percs yesterday. Mr. Clown wasn't having any part of that.

I also like the watchman goby and his buddy the pistol shrimp. Just gotta make sure your bottom rocks are firmly in the sand sitting on the bottom. Avalanches aren't a good thing as the pistol will tunnel.

I also agree about putting the mandarin off for quite some time.

thanks for all the help. to hosue these fish i am deciding between a 125 galon and a 120, not a big difference except the demsions. i presonally like the 125 five because its really long. 125-(72X18X22). a 6 footer! the 120 is (48X24X24) comes out far from the wall. i like the 125, i think it will trick the fishes into thinking they ahve a much larger aquarium than the 120. any thoughts

I would get a Fridmani Pseudochromis for your dotty-back! They are really cool and kind of glow bluish under actinics. They are pretty pricy though (I got mine for $40 at my lfs) so make sure that they cannot jump out. For something less pricy but sort of the same look, just a little bit fatter and shorter, you can get a magenta dotty-back for about $15.
