Randall is a Pink Spotted Goby and officially the second fish in my salt water reef tank. It's been a little over a month and my tank finally cycled and was ready for new inhabitants. Salt tanks can be very finicky so I have been making sure to take things slow. I picked up a Goby not only because I think they look awesome but, they also do something very unique. They will gulp sand and sift it through their gills. It's very bizarre and entertaining to witness.
This is not Randall but a different Goby doing his thing.
Here is a picture I took at the fish store before bringing him home.
I also picked up a small little Hermit crab so we can have more movement in the tank.
Randall instantly claimed Byf's home. Kinda feel bad for the guy getting uprooted like that but he didn't put up much of a fight haha.
Another cool thing about these types of gobies is that they will pair up with certain types of shrimp called Pistol Shrimp. They will share the little burrow and bring each other things around the tank and protect the "home".
Overall, the tank has been running smoothly *knock on wood* Hope you guys enjoy following along.
