so the clown was dead when I got home tonight, just flushed him. I'm getting really annoyed. That was a $50 fish. I dont understand what the problem has been. Ive lost so many fish and it's really putting a downer on this whole hobby.

I'm sorry. Keep your head up! Experience is most certainly the best teacher. Things will get better.

Hope so. My girlfriend bought me two fish. Neon dotty back and a sand sifting goby. He's pretty big. 5" or so. Neon dottyback is small. 2"

I hope they do well.

iPhone pix suck. Dottyback is fast and the actinics are on right now so it looks so blue and blurry.

The goby I have is a diamond goby according to the research I've done. I hope he stays well. He was chillen for a little bit after acclimation but has gone to work on my sandbed. constantly taking mouthfuls. Now my tank is all cloudy. It;s not really from the sand itself, but the dust and crap that's settled in the sand since November. Will this have a negative effect on my snowflake clown, cleaner shrimp, neon dottyback, and corals? I assume once he goes through the entire bed then over time it will not always be cloudy?

I was always unsure of the orange diamond goby but it's a really neat fish. I've always wanted something to maintain the sandbed but was not looking for a conch (no offense beengirl lol) I just didnt want it to knock over any corals/etc. ill keep updates daily if needed on here so stay tuned. I noticed a splash a couple minutes ago when I was just laying down watching TV. I quickly glanced at the tank and the diamond goby seemed to be chasing the clown, but I'm not sure if they both scared eachother or whatever the case may be...

My Orangespot Diamond Head Goby throws sand over all my corals and clams that are on the sandbed lol. Can be a messy bugger. Eats like a monster too. Gets along well though with everybody and I got quite the mix from tangs to quite a few gobies under two inches. I'm sure yours will be quite entertaining too.
