    since my purple striped dottyback went carpet surfing ive been looking for another fish and i was woundering if it was safe to add a yellow clown goby but wasnt sure if my engineer would eat him hes only 2 1/2'' and the yellow clown goby is about 3/4'' the engineer goby will be moved into a 75g at my freinds in a week so should i wait? he never bothers anything unless it goes under his rock

    I don't think you'll have a problem with those two together.

    ya they can eat little amounts of large brine by filter feeding to but baby brine is more affective

    it is important to have minimal water flow until the brine reaches them then when they start eating turn it back on it should take about 3-4 minuets in a tank approximately 20 in tall

    You can also spot feed, I use a turkey baster to get the food directly to my corals

    The Yellow Clown Goby's diet should consist of a variety of brine shrimp, frozen mysis shrimp, table shrimp, and frozen food preparations for carnivores.
    Be careful if you're keeping SPS because they'll nip at the smaller polyps
