Never tried feeding it to FW fish. I know Triggers will eat the bad crabs and stuff.

Well since people fed goldfish to saltwater fish it was worth asking :P
Anyway, almost done reading that website. I'm a fast reader but that site has a lot of info and links. And now I want a SW tank even more.
Could you keep two diff types of goby together?? There are a couple a absolutely love!!

Yes, Gobys are pretty peaceful critters.

Should I add them both at the same time or get one, then QT the next in my 3.5. That is the biggest QT I have. Should you QT inverts in there too? Or will they carry diseases?

I dont know if it is diff for SW or not, but could you just add the first batch in to the aquarium?? The 3.5 I think might be set up as a QT for the 25. If I use it for a QT for the fish should I put live rock in it? Or just do water changes often? And do you always get hitchhikers?
And I think I'm going to do red spotted goby and green banded goby.
Now for the inverts . . .

The QT is up to you. I've never put anything in QT. Always into the DT. But from others point of view, you should QT them even in the beginning, because it they do carry something, it can stay in the DT. Then technically have to go without fish for a period of time. You don't need any substrate or live rock in qt. You can run the little mechanical filters on those, and just add a fe pieces of pvc for the fish to hide in.

DT is main tank, right? So the gobies don't get QT, but if they are sick do I dose the whole tank or put them in a QT? No QT for inverts either. So I only really need the one tank. I wouldn't want more then 2 fish anyway.
So for inverts I have:
Banded Coral Shrimp
Gold Banded Coral shrimp
Blood red coral shrimp
nerite snails
blue tuxedo urchin
Brittle Star
Bumble bee snial
Elec. blue hermit crab
Elec. orange hermit crab
Feather duster
Hawaiian feather duster
Peppermint shrimp
Pom pom crab
Sexy Shrimp
Spiny Star astrea
Scarlet skunk cleaning star
Tank bred aspista eating shrimp
Turban snail
Zebra turbo snail

Are any of these not reef safe? Or will try to eat the fish or other inverts? And do they all eat coraline algae?? I'd like to try and cover the back in it like some people have done.
