Okay, WC tonight it is.

My neon goby is looking slightly beat up... My firefish keeps chasing him and trying to nip at him. I thought these fish were supposed to be shy! I'm just hoping and hoping he does not pick up any disease. Doing a 30-40% PWC tonight to make sure all levels in the tank are good. If he does not appear to be unhealthy, I am going to get a clown goby (assuming my LFS has them in stock...) to ease the aggression from my firefish off of him so he's not the only target.

Make sure you see the clown goby eat before you buy him. That way you know he's fat and happy!

Also, are you going to QT the clown goby? If the neon goby is stressed and the clown goby has something the neon goby will probably be very susceptible.

No, I have no means of QTing him. I'm really not sure what to do! I want to get in another fish in there ASAP to stop the aggression of the firefish from being solely on him... but I don't want any disease either. What do I do?

Move some rocks around and maybe put in a couple of small pieces of PVC tubing for convenient hidey holes.

I tried the rock thing, it didn't help. The aggression has always been there. He has a little hidey hole that is his and he is in there a lot, but I know he wants to do more swimming, but most of the time when he tries, the firefish will go after him. So he has plenty of places to hide.

Sometimes it takes a few days or more for the other fish to ignore him.

Just finished my PWC. Did a little over 25%. I'm so used to doing 50% PWCs on my FW tanks that I wasn't satisfied with only 10% tonight lol.
