How do gobies get along?

Of the tangs, with whom do the gobies get along? Or maybe I should be asking with whom they don't. In reading about them, I understand they like to scrape algae. Would I need to be using a fluorescent light in order to create algae for them to scrape or will they be fine just with the provided food?

I would think that most all gobies will get along fine with tangs. And the food provided should be fine.

I believe he's referring to the goby cichlids of tanganyika, the most common being the jewel goby (and a scientific name that I can't seem to recall). They'll do fine on a high quality pellet such as NLS and will do fine given there are plenty of hide spots and places to perch and "watch for predators" lol
