    Hello Johan,

    Looking nice sofar.

    Just a comment : It looks like you have a blue cheeked goby in there.
    How old is your tank ? Remember that the goby will sift the substrate for food and if there is none (like in new setups) it could slowly starve to death if you don't feed it sufficiently.

    How old is your tank now Johan? The other fish is a blue cheek goby and they need a mature tank to survive as they sieve the ground/substrate for microlife and critters. If the tank is too new they usually starve to death. Just remember it will still sieve but it doesn't mean it gets food. You might need to give supplement food to the goby if the tank is still too young.

    I mostly feed my fish newly hatched brine shrimp and the goby likes eating it so i think it alright, as for the tank its been up for about 2 months now and basicly all my water paramaters are stable

    Try and get the goby to go for frozen or if you're really lucky prepared flakes or pellets. Otherwise they don't really do well if the system isn't large and matured
