Yep, my 55g was full of them. I don't mean a few either, I'm talking hundreds. There was a literal field of them growing from the sand. I ended up nuking the whole tank with ammonia and it's now recycling. So yep, one or two can completely take over a tank.

They will get big don't worry. Then you can nuke them one by one with aipatsia X or with kalwasser solution.

On a good note, the O.D of ammonia cleared up ALL the coralline algae and everything looks brand new. lol Still sitting with nitrites but I expect them to go down by the time the tank sells.

It think it might work. I know that Carey has a few Gobies and a Blenny on her rimless tank.

I have heard of them moving fish away from their territory if they get too close (again, thanks to Carey's thread, lol).

I have 3 gobies and 2 blennies in my 20g. I had 3 blennies but my two spot blenny disappeared a couple weeks ago. :-(

In my opinion, yes, the YWG is the most aggressive of the bunch BUT BUT BUT they seem without any real threat. Mine constantly lunges at passing fish but never does anything more than that. he does it to the mandarin too and she just keeps going or doing what she was doing. Not one fish pays the YWG any mind. LOL

I agree, bottom dwellers are very cool. They are fun to watch!

I have my ywg in with a citron goby, 2 clown, scooter and mandy of course. Not sure if this happens alot, but my YWG turned white and hasnt changed color back....The LFS said it might be a female and they can do that.

Just a warning, cause mine was brilliant yellow and now is a grumpy gray white color. Still love him and all but just not colorful or very nice to look at. Amusing sometimes, like when he tries to be the big bad fish and does the open mouth lunge thing. lol

Hahaha that sounds so funny! Ppen mouthed lunge! You should post a video of that sometime! Clown gobys might work? If it changes colors, thatd be a bummer, but oh well! Id still lile him
