    Hi Guys,

    I currently have a rockskipper blenny and I am thinking of getting a Yellow watchman goby (really cool dude for a good price at the LFS). Has anyone kept these 2 together? Will they be ok together? have a standard 4 foot tank. Also have a 6 line wrasse...would the wrasse possibly cause problems for the Yellow watchman goby? The blenny is about twice the size of the watchman that I am looking at adding! Any advise would be appreciated:thumbup:!

    I have a Golden head Goby and a LawnMower Blennie in a 90L tank. Now a 230L tank. Both same size. No problem. Goby was first and at first he was extremely scared of the blennie. But the blennie just ignored him. Blennie only had an issue with one of the Yellow Tail Blue Damsels.

    Blennies and Gobys tend to get along fine. Your 6 line will probably welcome the newbie.

    Just be careful with sandsifters as some guys are driven to madness by the fish constantly spitting sand on corals and rocks. Your substrate also need to be very fine

    Is a yellow watchman goby a sandsifter? Gonna google some info on the little bugger. I have playsand and some really fine crushed coral mixed as substrate. Just concerned about the fish clashing with each other! Have heard that the 6 kine wrasse can be a pain in the neck with other wrasse's and any new comer to a tank.
