tank environment with sponges

Hi, first time poster.

I decorated my tank to look like a reef using rocks, sand, dead coral and dead, dry sponges of all kinds that I found on the beach. I soaked the coral and sponges in water with bleach for several days, rinsed it, added de-chlorinator, rinsed it, let it dry, and built a natural looking environment by gluing everything together with silicone. I tried it out with one fish for a month, then added 3 more. It seems to working out great... no deterioration whatsoever. Its been 3 months. Do you forsee any potential problems with my setup? I have no herbavores that would nibble on the sponge husks. Thanks.

How big is the tank? Figure 8's are generally pretty peaceful, but you should still keep an eye out to make sure it doesn't bug your other fish, especially the slower-moving goby. The Columbian shark will get over a foot long and will eat the knight goby and probably the figure 8 after a while. Monos also get fairly big and can be nippy, but should also be kept in a school.
