    Rainfordi Goby

    I am considering adding 4 Rainfordi Gobies to my tank and wanted your thoughts/opinions on this.
    (p.s. would they jump out of an open-top tank?)

    Their tank-mates would be:
    Red-Sea Sailfin Tang
    Occelaris Pair
    Six-Line Wrasse
    Copperband Butterfly - Australian (Tentative)
    Algae Blenny (Tentative)
    and then these 4 rainfordi would be all the fish i plan for my 72 gal.

    I am always open to the suggestions of my fellow reefers.

    what i like about them is that they look cool (in the pictures at least) and they are small, so it would give me the opportunity to have 4 of them and while i like variety, i feel that having a small group of one fish gives the reef a more natural effect than just one of everything. On top of all this, the eat HAIR ALGAE which is always a big hit.
    here is a picture:

    got my vote! there great underrated fish. they love to eat hair algea. and for some reason no other fish seems to bother them at all.

    Great little fish, however, 4 adults might quarrel in one tank if they don't have enough hiding spots and places to roam. Introduce them together into the tank...

    yes, i am introducing them all together.
    yes, i do have 120 lbs live rock for them to run around in.
    from what i understood, they prefer to be in groups.

    Johnny, i know i have your vote, it was your idea. This will bring our tastes closer together

    Cool ALRHA

    Don't worry ALRHA, were fairly manly up North as well. TOUTOUCH is just a little jealous were getting so close: On a serious note, 4 RAINS in a 120 is no probs at all. I love these Gobies and will be getting a gaggle[is that a word?] for my future tank. They never fight and just swim all day through out the rock picking at hair algea. Cool fish.

    ok johnny, i was sure we would be on the same boat there as well

    i have a 72, not a 120.

    what in the world is a gaggle? canadian slang?
