Question Added Clown Goby

Hey everyone. So after a month of searching i finally found a Yellow Clown Goby at my LFS. I bought it and brought him home to join my Ocellaris Clown and my 4 hermit crabs. I had a Purple Pseudochromis as well but he began to attack my little Clown Goby. I returned the Pseudochromis back to the LFS because I like the Clown Goby much more. He spends his time perched on the top of an ornament i have in my tank.

Question: Will another kind of Goby be a bad idea for my 20 gallon having the clown goby in it?

Pseudo's tend to be nasty little fish. You would be fine adding a different kind of goby, clowns don't mix with clowns in a tanks that small, so maybe go for a watchman goby.

What i'm most interested in is how in the [Moderator Edit] you caught your pseudo. Little buggers are faster then you know what.

Actually it was rather funny. He caught himself. Lol. I have a fake coral ornament that is hollow and open at the bottom. As I moved everything around to catch this fast little fish, he swam into the ornament. I simply scooped it up like a cup of water and dump the water and the fish into a container. Lol.

By the way, i dont know how to feed my clown goby. He is so small and always hiding that i dont know if he eats. I see him clearly but I rarely see him jump out at something small floating in the water column. Any suggestions?
