i havnt had any issues with my lion or other fish with aggression other then my yellow eye kole tang. which i got rid of. he tried to kill my wrasse and lionfish. i ended up with a one spot foxface for now as ill be upgrading to a 75 in the somewhat near future. they are the smallest of them and ive heard and read that there monsters with eating algae. i do have a skimmer in there its the remora C pro. the only issue i have with it is that its shooting a TON of micro bubbles into the water. any suggestions on this? i also added in another 8 pounds of live rock and created another cave. the foxface seems happy but hides whenever i come in or am trying to see him. im sure he'll lighten up as he gets used to the tank.

Sometime it takes a few days to get the Skimmer to stop shooting micro bubbles into the tank.

Feed the fox a bit of nori 2-3x a week it helps The more places you have to hide the better the fish will feel. They like the idea of a cave next to them rather than 4 feet away lol
Sounds like the skimmer needs to break in again

Yea, get the lion in silversides as soon as you can! Freshwater anything is not that good for saltwater fish.

I would try soaking a silverside in garlic for a while and than dangling it (it's really like fishing) on some clear string that makes it look like a real fish. So long as it can easily come off the said string if he takes the bait! :-p

I would WAIT for the Goby! Let your tank establish. You got a lot in their right now and adding anything else will just make your life more difficult. Trust me! Slow wins this race my friend!

A Goby will be looking for food in the sand, and being you have nothing in your sand yet, it would be a bad Idea to get one. Wait at least 2 months! :-p Than get another fish! Let you system become more established! You can also get Tiger Pods and start growing a colony of them. Just release them at night when all of your fish are sleeping. :-p

my sand is far from empty. there is alot going on in there thats why i want the goby. when i had moved it from the guy i purchased it from i think i sturred up ALOT of bad stuff that had been dormant inside the water. so all of that algae is coming out. i have a good bunch of diatoms in there which i know will go away on its own. its just depressing to look at :/ any suggestions on my feeding for the lion as i posted above?
