They are! Whenever I go to down to my LFS to buy fish food I spend so much time watching their gobys. They are simply fascinating.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

He was way skinnier than that when I got him. I was very concerned when I first got him but he has always ate well. He is a voracious eater at feeding time and one hell of a sifter throughout the day He gets any formula one/two that hit the bottom of the tank anywhere near him during feeding time. Constant motion. :)

Once every four or five days I drop a little frozen brine shrimp directly into his favorite spot. That is the only target feeding I do.

That is what I was doing for months before I bit the bullet and decided I had room for both my discus/angels and a small reef. I can't wait to setup a large reef when we move. I don't want to setup anything else now just to break it down when we sell the house and set it all up again in the new house. ;)
