    the only ones i've see are kinda small
    they look nice

    they are the same as cleaner goby's aren 't them

    i would think they would be ok, as long as your puffer doesn't like them

    Yeah, they had a few for sale at Pet Paradise. I just figure that they would help keep the tank clean.

    they don't keep the tank clean, they help keep the fish clean of ich etc,, in your case I think the puffer would eat them. you could always try one but,,,.

    Bluestripe Neon Goby are awesome little fish cleaners. I have seen them with Puffers, but the goby was in the tank before the Puffer was added. I would be more concerned with one of your starfish getting him at night.

    Oh yeah, I head that the chocolate chip starfish are real bad for that stuff, they have taken out a few snails but that is about it.

    No way! i would have never guessed a chocolate chip could get a fish. LOL

    I use to try to put a goldfish under one i had long ways back to see if it could be done. always got away.

    I could see a snail become a meal


    did you get the goby? i looked at them too, but i thought they were a little too much

    Yes they were, and just too small for me. I really think my puffer would have a feast.
