    Hi I just saw a Court Jester Goby at my LFS. I read that they are hard to take care of unless in a well established system. What experience level would you recommend it to?

    That would be a great fish for your tank. But they are jumpers so i would make a mesh lid for your tank.

    Although generally good, I've seen a few inaccurate fish descriptions at LiveAquaria. They said my Yellow Clown goby was reef safe but that little fish nipped the hell out of my corals.

    Anyone actually had this fish?

    from live aquaria description

    " Care needs to be taken, however, with SPS corals since the Yellow Clown Goby may nip at the smaller polyps."

    Since the last time I looked at this they updated the description. And my yellow clown nipped only at my LPS.
