For what its worth, the Citron Goby is a cold water fish that will not live long in a tropical marine aquarium. Just an FYI for anyone browsing the thread.

Pciked up 2 banggai cardinals (Pterapogon kauderni). Haven't eaten they seem to nibbel on the food. I am feeding frozen brine and mysis. My Citrinis goby (Gobiodon citrinus) is a pig.

I hope mine will breed.
Is formula 1 flake or pelate better.
I need ideas for a fish that will clean up my sand (algea and left over food), my ideas
Two Spot Goby (Signigobius biocellatus) (Like)
Scooter Blenny (Synchiropus ocellatus) (love)
and a larger goby
Sleeper Banded Goby (Amblygobius phalaena) (ehh)

i like pellet just because its easier not to overfeed...i find the number of pellets that the fish in particular eats in a given feeding snd go from there ..i find flake to float,sink , and mix around with the filter...flake is fine but i find pelleted foods easy..i like to supplement with some good frozen foods...spiralina brine shrimp and mysis shrimps are pretty good..

Hermit crabs and some of the smaller rock-dwelling fish can help with that, but honestly feeding less will help too. My hubby has fed our fish a lot since I started working, and I am CONSTANTLY having to get on him about how much he is feeding.

I can't use a floating flake, it will get sucked straight into the overflow in my big tank. I use New Life Spectrum pellets, I mix a tiny bit of the .5mm "small fish formula" pellets, and the 1mm regular marine formula. Now and then I also feed a half cube of Formula One frozen. And that would be a half cube for both tanks together. I soak both kinds in a cup with tank water before feeding and squirt it in with a turkey baster to make sure its down past the overflow. :)
