I got some pics from Google Images omg

Brent: That is a great species but they are venemous. Just be aware that when you're cleaning the tank don't go near them.

The Trimma and Eviota gobies are awesome. They are pretty, interesting, and not very common. They take prepared foods very well. Mysis and Brine is great, they are easy to feed. Many of these species will do well in groups. Trimma Tevegae will even shoal.

Trimma tevegae


The shrimp gobies are always a great addition as well. Shrimp gobies of the genus Stonogobiops are colorful, small, and really interesting. The Hi Fin Red Banded Goby and the Yasha Shrimp Goby are great choices.

I might get the croucher if I move up to a bigger tank. I would like a link for Trimma tevegae if you have one animal.

Those gobies can be VERY territorial towards each other. You pretty much always have to introduce them at the same time or else they'll beat each other up lol.
They are in general a really peaceful and interesting goby choice.

IMO you could definetly go for goby pairs in a tank this size. You could do trios or even more.

A single one is fine though Smile

Oh god man you shouldnt have told me that. You just made this a really fun stocking ;list to choose.

I do have some tank news also. The diatoms have leveled off and the tank is starting to stabalize. The only issue is that my little piece of seed rock is all but dead from the massive diatom bloom I had so I may have to go back and get more rock.

Just be careful about the goby irritating them (SPS).

They eat the mucus of, perch on/play in and lay their eggs underneath SPS coral.

The eggs can cause tissue recession (which isn't a problem in a large colony, but in a small one...) where they are lain. -EDIT: yours may not lay eggs at all.
