    If you need anymore supplys for the school tank, hit me up. I've got a garage full of stuff.

    WAY cool classroom tank! You guys are awesome to do that for the kids!
    Aside - Bruce, is your sand so fine that the goby's burrow keeps caving in? Would some bigger particles calm him down? That is crazy.

    Actually it's fairly coarse sand. I just bought new sand for the new tank and Cos at Diablo Corals indicated it's a "4" on the "coarseness scale (out of eight from what I was told.) The sand in the old tank is much coarser than that. It's not the fineness of the sand that keeps it in the water column -- it's the constant sifting and lifting. He never stops!

    After doing some research I've learned I'm not the only one. It's not uncommon with this species (Sleeper Gold Head Goby) that they rise so high in the tank to drop. I'm told that the Diamond Gobies don't do this -- and even most of the Gold Heads -- but if you google it you'll see many horror stories. But damn the sand looks amazing.
