    Thanks for the advice. I've already asked JustPhish (who I'm planning on getting the fish from) about what he's feeding it currently.

    I have a pair of Diamond Gobies who have done really well to clean my sand. I was wondering if they would get on with a lawnmower or similar blenny in a 135 gallon tank?

    Cheers,

    my lawn mower stayed to itself and did not care about other gobies at all

    Diamond Goby

    I bought a diamond goby a week ago. When I was doing a water change two days ago he jumped out and became dog food :( it was sad, but now I know to to keep my tank covered as much as possibly. I love the learning experience Im getting with this hobby

    I know I'm really late to the game on this one...but my Diamond Watchman was my favorite fish. It was always interested in what I was doing, and not only built burrows, but actually struggled with shells and rocks bigger than his head to build a wall LOL. Never had a jumping problem at all.

    It even teamed up with my tiny red-headed goby and my tiny blue coral-banded shrimp. Of course I can't find the decent pic I have of the 3 of them, just 2 really small ones under the actinics that you can't even really see the shrimp in!

    I saw one that my LFS just got in today. I'm sure it'll be gone by the time my tank is ready, but I'll be getting another for sure!
