Question Gobies and Clownfish?

I'll be setting up a 32g biocube sometime next summer. It'll have a pair of True Percula, and hopefully by fall it'll be a Nano Reef. Would a Yellow Watchman Goby be okay in that setup? The Clownfish will be an unsexed pair of juveniles. Or would another Goby be a better choice? If I do get a Goby, they'd have to be one that is captive bred.

Pink spotted goby would be a good choice

It looks a lot better than a Yellow Watchman Goby, but unless they've been captive bred, I'm not going to think about it.

Those look pretty. I'll have to ask my LFS if they can get them the next time I'm there.

I won't be getting any fish until summer at the earliest. I've got to get the tank setup first. I don't like shipping live fish. At all. I'd much rather go to my LFS and get them from there.

If you have a good Lfs yeah Id definitely buy from them but a lot of people do not like me. So I have to order everything online and Ive ordered from a bunch of sources and Id say 95% of the time the corals or fish are fine and healthy!

I do have a very good LFS, and I prefer to support it over big chain stores.
