I would stay away from crushed coral sands better if you have 2 inch you should be fine I have my goby pistol in two inch and they dig all day loll


Crushed coral cannot supports sifting gobys etc also it's difficult to clean as opposed to sand IMO

Ok thanks, since they are going to be a pair. Do you think I'll have any problems with my goby jumping?
