    So after the jestersix meeting Jill and I did the bay area gauntlet of reef stores.

    Aquatic Collection, Cali Reef Co, and then Neptune Aquatics.

    The critter system is up and running at neptune aquatics!!! And Robert is literally the only store that carries the nano fish Ive been looking for!

    I went home with
    • Green Banded Goby
    • Trimma Spotted Goby
    • Green Clown Goby
    • 4-6 polyps of Mandarin Zoas for 35$!!! (More like 4 polyps cuz two are a lil damaged but awesome grab either way :))

    Sweet haul! I'd have to buy like 15 fish and a few colonies to proportionally fill my tank that much!

    Ive got to get down and Neptunes. Always loved going there. After the meeting I hit AC ( dangerous to have a store less than 5 minutes away ) no corals yet but did grab some fish

    I was also there yesterday and had a hard time not emptying my wallet. I almost picked up a green bar goby as well, ended up with a velvet gumdrop goby instead along with a sexy shrimp and some SPS and an amazing coloured lobo.

    The Panda goby was cute but too small for me not to lose it in the tank!

    That green clown goby is beautiful and one of the fish I've always liked. We had one in our first tank.

    @Enderturtle - Michael, gobies are my favorite fish - do these stay small, get along, sift sand?

    Neptune is dangerous, especially if you run both fw and sw setups. They're on my way home from work.

    Dude that Panda Goby was ridiculous >_< It was hardly bigger then a grain of rice. I wasn't so much worried about losing it as about my clowns eating it.... I've seen amphipods bigger then that fish

    As much as I love nano fish, I dread bringing them in because although they are small, they still cost just as much as the bigger fish. However, if I bring in a $2K shipment, I can at least see them. With nano fish, not so much...lol

    Good to see some nano fish stock again (used to have them at the old store).

    Hope they all do well for you, Enderturtle :)

    When you start bringing in tiny Anemone Shrimp and Crinoid Squat Lobsters...that's when we can call you a 'Baller' ;)

    @Geneva some of them are get bigger then others but they're all much smaller then a sand sifting goby (like max 3")
    I've never heard of a sand sifting goby being aggressive towards any other fish but I haven't kept any or done a lot of research. I imagine that they're so small and look different enough that he wouldn't feel threatened.

    I personally find the clown and gumdrop gobies really fun because they always look so grumpy and they just sit and glare at you all the time.

    I take that back, Robert is officially a Baller :)

    Crinoid Squat Lobsters are reef safe. They are rather clumsy and should to be hand fed (I feed mine twice a day).

    Hey Robert,

    Just put my name on a pair of those Pedersons and I'll be down this Saturday (seriously).

    Ralph.
