Blue banded gobies can change sex. This change is dependent on their social environment (see research by Grober et al.). If you purchase all females, the largest, less subordinate female will change into a male. If you place a larger male in a take with a smaller male, the smaller male will become a female.

I've kept a few of these gobies in tanks where temp reached 85 degrees. The statement of 74 degrees being the max is false. I've kept a pair for well over 2 years at higher temps with no problems.

We have 2 dominos and they both love our anemones. We thought that strange till we saw your picture.

    To my surprise, I too had my Domino Damsel get into my anemone. I noticed it allowing the anemone to sting it on several occasions and it would defend the anemone. I thought this unusual until I saw this picture. So is this normal for this species of Damsel? And what will happen to my Maroon Clown when it wants to join in? Thank you.

I have had a leopard wrasse for seven months, and I did not even see it for the first two months. It survived when my tank had ich, and everything in the tank died off except for it. But dont be worried if you dont see the fish for a week, they can hang.

I have two of these fish. One is a bit bigger than the other. The big one is very aggressive. If I could catch it I would probably get rid of it. I can not put any new fish in the tank without it chasing them and making them hide all the time. My clown fish seems to hold its own against the bully fish. My dragon-net guy that hangs out on the bottom doesn't seem to get picked on either.

I have had my blue spotted grouper for about 3 years now and he is the definitely the hardiest fish i've ever witnessed. My fishes face also turned white! That started as a spot about a year ago and now its across his WHOLE FACE! He is a perfectly healthy fish, hungriest ive ever owned. Your comment actually brought me to this site because I was looking up why that would have happened. Is that normal???

    That is a curious phenomenon that apparently it does happen, and doesn't seem to be a problem for the fish.

I have had a falco hawk for about 5 months now and I haven't had any problems with him. He is an awesome fish for my reef tank. Never has he eaten my hermit crabs, snails, or peppermint shrimp. The small glass shrimp I feed him periodically are consumed right away! I wonder if these other people are feeding theirs enough. Mine eats pellet food, freeze dried krill, frozen mysis shrimp, and the glass shrimp. I feed him twice a day, dropping one or two pieces of food in at a time until he no longer begs for more. I also have a clownfish that follows him around like they are paired up lol. This is a very fun fish, don't let the other people's comments scare you away.

    if it will fit in his mouth, he will eat it, just a matter of time. not so much the hard shelled critters, but the shrimp are living on borrowed time

    yup I def. agree. I had a hawkfish sweet as can be for a few months then ate my huge cleaner shrimp.. all of them!! i caught him with the antennaes hanging out of his mouth!

    I have a 'Falco hawkfish', they are too small to do any real damage, may eat shrimp.. Mine leaves everything alone except worms, and also eats pieces of fish that I target feed the brittle star. I think that people who are claiming they are attacking their other fish are idiots, something else is doing this in your tank, or you're just plain lying for attention.
