I am going to defer to the experts here and take your advice... hence me posting the question. Marine husbandry is soo different from freshwater that I need to throw away lots of what I know.

I personally think one fish is stocked to the max in a NC12. You really only have 8 gallons of water to work with.

And clownfish are boring. Especially with the variety saltwater has to offer. I'm not saying I would give mine up, but I'm saying I would rather have something else. Everyone and their brother has a clown.

Yea but gotta remember, gobies come in all sizes, come in 10" or 1". I shoulda been more clear, a smaller goby be ideal. But remember too to the poster, 12g Nanocube, its more like 10g's it's off on gallonage in advertising. I would say couple gallons is in the back too for filter, so really like 8g display area......
