I am planning on setting up a new tank and cannot decide between a firefin goby group or a mandarin dragonette/goby pair and cannot decide which ones are cooler thanks.

I don't know anything about a firefin goby but I would STRONGLY recommend AGAINST the mandarin. (They need a large 90+ gallon tank that is well established and has a large pod population and still most die).

Hope it didn't come across to hard with that

Edit: If you mean the Firefish Goby then I would say go with it. Very nice looking fish and is on my wish list as well.

I agree, no to the mandarin. With the firefish, make sure you have a top because they're jumpers.
