I squirshed him...

I didn't mean to, moved some live rock and my green clown goby that I purchased today decided to swim under it the second I put it down. I estimate it to be a 4.5 lb piece. After I moved the rock, he swam away frantically and went under another rock. Should I live him be? Or move the rock to check on him?

Not much you can do if he was injured. If the substrate is soft, as in sand, it may have had enough cushion to keep him from getting hurt. Just keep an eye out for him or drop in a little food and see if you can coax him out.

Keeping fingers crossed for you.....

If your goby is as small as the clown goby I got yesterday he will probably be fine. They are awful tiny.

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

This stuff happens. I just assisted in the death of my candycane goby. :-(

I had to break my whole tank down to get a fish out and he must have gotten squished or stressed but he's gone. never found a body either.

It really sucks but don't give up.
