    Looking very good. What are the tanks dimensions? How long did your cycling period take before putting in livestock?

    Nice size tank, similar to mine and plenty of room to play with:thumbup:. Just adding damsels so early could cause problems down the line with adding new fish.

    Damsels territorial, take it back to your LPS and swap them for goby's. just going to cause problems on the long run. I had 2 in my 2 m tank, and they rule the hole tank. Made me a trap catch them, it took 3 days for my poor bicolor and goby's to make sure they not in the tank any more. Hiding all the time.
