Looking Great!

Love the coraline algae!
How's the Hector Goby? I saw one at my LFS, such a great looking fish!

He's doing ok. I think he may have ventured into the other gobies habitat and taken a little bit of a beating but he seems to be recovering just fine. I'm amazed that the small little high finned read banded goby could do that. Can't think of who else would have done it as I've not seen the clown fish hav e any issues with him.

He's found his own little cave and comes out 5-6 times a day to graze in the sand or on the live rock. It's pretty cool to watch him eat and see the sand come sifting out of his gills. They are a great little addition to a tank.

It does look really interesting. I wonder how one would get along with my little red headed goby.

How are the shrimp/goby combo? They seem super interesting and i've also been looking at them for my other tank. I think im falling in love with gobies.

The shrimp goby combo is awesome but they have picked their spot out and aren't seen a whole lot (backside of the rockwork.). They ARE visible but you only see the shrimp when the goby gives the OK. The goby comes way out in the open when I broadcast feed the tank and gets pretty brave, lol.

Usually you don't see the shrimp. I see mine maybe once a month, but there's always signs (huge sand piles). So they won't be located in the back for long.

OK, so I spoke to soon, lol. Got home from work tonight and noticed a new sandpile and lo and behold, the shrimp and goby have set up camp in the front of the rockwork. I hope they stay there but will have to see. Adding some pics. I've been using my digital cam this whole time with soso pics. My wife showed me the 'HD" feature on our phones and I'll be using them from here on out. I think they came out killer and may submit one for photo of the month. Anyways, meet:

The protector



And his buddy





Any thoughts on which one to submit? I may post a few more. She got some great shots of everything this weekend.

Thanks for looking.
