Haha yeah! Those yellow watchmans are mean!!
Would 2 diamond gobies get along in a 75 gallon?

Thats a lot of diamond goby in my opinion. lol They eat from the sand so you might not have enough food to support two. Plus they will destroy your sandbed, lol, most people with one of them complain. hehe

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Haha I'm kinda hoping they'll go through my sand bed! I don't want my sand bed to be perfectly flat, I want it to be natural...okay so not 2 diamond gobies but 1 diamond goby, could I get another type of goby in there?

My lfs has a Green Mandarin right now, an I see copepods all over my sand bed! There's probably 20 per 2 square inches! And they have him trained to eat frozen brine.. I know my tank is not established, actually this would be the first fish in the tank but do you think I could get him?
I have a refugium running on this tank btw

If he's eating frozen, then that's your best bet for keeping one alive. But when he starts eating your pods, he could revert back to eating only pods.
If you really want one, this would be the one to try it with, IMO.

Your saying the green mandarin is the one to try it with?
I saw him eat live brine today but I'm going back tomorrow to see him eat frozen

No, I'm saying any Mandarin eating (I thought frozen) brine. Live foods have their own dangers.
If he's eating frozen, I would get him.

When you say live foods, you mean by them carrying diseases and stuff?
Haha yeah! My good friend works tomorrow so I can get him 20% off!
Will he develop a tall dorsal fin like some or is it like that from birth?
