Blenny vs. goby

What would be the better choice for a bottom dweller, a Midas blenny or a yellow watchman goby? I kinda like the look of the Midas better.

Well its all up to you. Personally, i love the midas. They get semi big though..so if you have a smaller tank i'd do the watchman.

I mean, yes..but they are really active and im not sure how a full grown midas would do in a 29. Its a toss up for me..your call!

They have a ton of personality though! Good luck!

My midas blennies i had weren't very bottom dweller like. They liked to swim mid tank and occassionally perched on a higher up rock in the tank.

The yellow watchman is very much a sand dweller though. It's mostly up to you. Both I think would be ok in your tank. ( Unless you have a lot of fish or big ones already)

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

How about the Midas and a goby of some type together? Would they both work well or would there be problems?
