Yellow headed gobies are supposed to be awesome in groups of 3-5... They "dance". They eat small pieces of mussel, daphnia, brine shrimp, bloodworms, or other meaty foods but they also eat pods if they are around, so they would make it harder for you to have a mandarin. They are also timid so you kinda need to target feed them.

Greenmaster- is that the same as the gold headed sleeper goby?

Anyone else have input on what I should add?

No the Gold Headed Sleeper is a sand sifter. The Yellowhead Jawfish,is also called the Pearly Jawfish, eats stuff out of the water column, but it is a very shy and timid eater so if you don't have pods in the tank they can be hard to keep fat and happy.

Maya- the nem is still in hiding but I haven't seen any signs of him dying so I'm not going to disturb things quite yet looking for him.

Leo- I do like anthias and that one is very pretty. I've also considered one of the fat head ones. Any I get will have to be solo though since I'm already planning the wrasse harem.

Greenmaster- I do like that pearly headed jawfish. For some reason I was thinking goby when I was looking.

I got 3 new acquisitions today.
1 bluespot jawfish
1 canary blenny
1 giant cap mushroom

I just realized I said I got a canary blenny. I think I actually got a Midas. I sure hope he's a Midas at least. I really don't think I would enjoy getting bit by a canary. I think it's bad enough when one of my black percs nips at me.

Have you seen the "nem" lately ??? Just an FYI but you probably already know this they release toxins when they die. I had one that went up underneath a rock I am guessing to get away from Big Mama I think she was to big for it and was rough with it so it kept trying to hide and when I found it was slowing turning into mush and got it out before it could do severe harm to the rest of the tank.
