I'm getting two of those bullets gobies. I like them - 'specially since they'll work for food.

One question though...

Does that bullet goby leave mounds/big piles of sand? I've seen some (larger variety in the 5" range like this one) sifters just pick up sand and put it in a pile. Those, I'm not crazy about. Looking for a sifter not interested in making new landscapes. Does this one?

Sorry Ray, mine does leave mounds but nothing over 2 inches tall. This goby will turn your sand over in a day or two so as you can imagine there will be some rework. But I dont think it`s that bad.

Guess I can do him like my pistol shrimps. Just push it back and let'm work some more. Exercise is a good thing.

Stopped by the LFS yesterday and chickened out. The sucker gets up to 6", right?

I'm looking for a 3-4 incher.

if you can find them the sifting conch snails look awesome and do a great job. Also a cucumber should help you out as well
