x2 Ocelleris Clowns

x1 Yellow Watchman Goby

I love my mated pair of ocelleris clowns. They just play around the tank all the time. I have heard that the yellow goby is not as easy or as long lived as some of the others but I have no experience with them.

Don't know. I trust the guys at my LFS store COMPLETELY. They won't even let me buy a coral or a fish that won't be happy in my tank. They Know my tank better than I do. They said they don't live long. could be a life span thing. or I could be completely wrong....

Yellow watchman gobies are easy to take care of, the best thing is that they keep the substrate clean. Great fish to watch; I would suggest a pair, they are timid and are more relaxed in pairs. I have a pair and they are great.

And they might be but IME the pink spotted watchman goby is also. Never had any problem with mine. You can view mine in my images.

Alright, but still, if i only had about 2" of sand in one area, and maybe a little less in other areas, do you think i could still have one of those fish that burrow? Along with a pistol shrimp?
