My 60g is gonna be all micro and small fish so anyone else know about the goby or blenny limit?
Maybe around 10-13 small fish

The engineer goby is kinda cool. he dug himself a hole in the front of the tank and just chills out all day. he is very mellow, he let the barnacle blenny that half his side win the battle over the rock. Oh and they grow really fast and can become a foot long from what I've read.

Since we are on this topic what do you think I should do with the engineer goby that I have in my 20g right now. He is several inches long sop he cant stay on there. Should I move him to the 90g or the 125g do you think? OR will he be ok in the new 60g?

What about a Midas blenny? Mine hangs out at the top of my toadstool (my centerpiece since it stands over a foot tall) and acts like he is king of the tank

I'd put him in the 90g or 125g

Would a Midas do well in a 25g?

The engineers are cool- but if you want flat sand- don't do it. Lol. Mine have cave work all over my tank. My sand always is changing because of it too. I have plenty of peaks and valleys. Lol

That's funny. When I had my Niger Triggerfish in my 55g, he moved a ton of sand from a rock he liked and there was a HUGE hill!
