It sounds like a goby would be my best bet. The only LFS that I would buy anything from on Maui usually only gets yellow watchman gobies. I already have a yellow fish, and am in the market for something of another color.

Thanks for all of your help folks.

Just bought a Firefish Goby last night. He hangs in mid tank most of the time,and quickly darts into his hiding place if a larger fish comes close to him. He has lots of personality. Cool to watch.

Can you keep multiple firefish in a tank?

Bound: To answer your question: Yes. I have four regular firefish in the same tank. The tank I purchased them from had about 20 regular, and 6-8 purple all in the same tank. I'm really skeptical of all the notes stating incompatibility between gobies... I haven't seen anything. These fish are too disgustingly peaceful!

I was thinking about eventually adding 2 or 3 into a 75 gal. The only other occupant right now is a single false perc.

Final goal and stocking order:
a pair of false perc's
2 or 3 firefish
1 mandarin
1 yellow tang


But I'm in no hurry and the list, of course, is subject to change.

I loved my firefish. Great addition to the tank. The bristleworms that were hiding in my live rock mad a mess of him about two months later. I will never forgive those bastards for what they did!

i have a strawberry basslet, it is magenta in color with electric blue rings around its eyes. It explored EVERY single crack, crevice, and cave in the tank. It actually only comes out "in the open" every once in awhile. It seems to be a very inquisitive fish that loves to play in the rocks.
