Gobies are just awesome is all, lots of pesonality and so many different kinds!

peppermint shrimp are usually cheap and pretty neat, I have some in all my SW tanks. Cleaner shrimp are good for cleaning your fish but generally are a bit more $$

Lots of gobies can pair with pistol shrimp.

I got a pistol shrimp so my pink spotted goby would have a buddy, but its been a couple months and nothing so far. Don't even think they know the other exists. lol
