    Fish and rock transfer... (question)(with video)

    I have 2 damsel (domino and a 3 stripe) and a yellow goby in my 29 gallon tank...

    They have been together for almost a year now with NO PROBLEM at all... But I've notice for the past few days that the damesels have been bothering the goby... The goby goes (attacks back maybe?) after them open mouth...

    I would get rid of the damsels but my girlfriend would KILL me

    Anyway...

    I want to move the goby to my 65 gallon tank along with the 8 pound rock that his been calling home for the past year.

    You will notice (from the video), my 29 gallon tank has a green hair algy problem (It's much better now... then what it was ) There is not alot of hair algy on the 8 pound rock but I would like to take it off before putting it in the 65g... Can I scrub it? What should I do before dropping that rock in my 65 gallon?

    Thanks...

    Here is the video of my damsels "not liking" my goby




    Right click and "save"

    Why is it called "cargo" when it goes by ship, and "shipment" when it goes by car?

    At least your putting the Goby First. I wouldn't worry about the rock...He'll find another one. That A lot of algea that I'm sure you don't want in your big tank. you could always get a really big damsel that may pick on the two you have!!!

    (sorry I just don't like Damsels! Cromis I could put up with but other then that UHHHHH! NO THANK YOU!)

    take the rock out when the goby is hiding in it- put the rock in a bucket and flush out the goby and then put the rock back in the damsel tank and the goby in the new tank- no netting
