Lol yea they're so cute! My clowns shoo him off the corals for the most part.. He doesn't seem to bother the corals though. I'm thinking about getting another one so he has a friend!

I have a green clown goby and a yellow one. I've heard they can be aggressive to their own kind but mine seem fine. The green one is constantly in the toadstool I have so he doesn't get out much lol

I thought that they live in colonies. I may be mistaken. I also heard they lay their eggs in/on the corals and the eggs can harm the corals. Opposite from clown fish the male is the larger of the pair in this goby relationship.

I believe I read that they can lay their eggs under the branches of SPS corals and that a coral should survive if they do. Getting my information from live aquaria. LOL

Ok. After a little re-reading, they usually remove small polyps on the stony coral branches to make a place for their eggs. Otherwise I think the coral may eat the eggs. I also read that they produce an unpalatable mucus that deters prey. Probably one reason why mine has survived among my clowns so far.

I have a green clown goby, if he isn't in the rocks he stays in the leather coral most of the time, and once in awhile visits the mushrooms! Great little gobies!!!
