My watchman goby never touched any of my shrimp. Of course- right now the only gobies that I have are engineers and they don't bother any of my shrimp (3 cleaners, 2 coral bandeds, 5 peppermints). I even just did a head count because I have never thought to look.

Honestly i'd be worried about the opposite happening..CBS's can be mean little suckers..When i had one it chased after fish,ripped their fins and just harassed them constantly ..Then i got a trigger

im going back and looking over all the links and resources i used to learn, and i keep thinking i rushed my set ups. at the time it seemed like it took forever. but really i wish i would have slowed down and taken the time to just let my tank sit empty. or just stair are a small cuc while my tank matured. not saying that im far along on my plan to finish my tank. just hind site being 20/20 and all that.

Does anyone have any experience orderering from bluezooaquatics.com? Were the fish/inverts/corals healthy? Did any diseases come with them?

Have you heard any really good and/or bad things about them?

As for the ammonia, do I just add a little bit at a time until I am at 4ppm? Do you have any strategies? Thanks.

I think its 34.99 but they've got a rewards program. Orders over $140 is free shipping, orders over $200 is a free lawnmower Blenny or zoa frag, orders over $300 is free blue tang or yellow tang

Awesome! So you have never gotten ich or anything like that before from them? I will QT anyway, but I just want to make sure they are as healthy as can be when they arrive.

Thanks.
