    Most any goby does well with a sandbed, Engineer or Watchman Goby's are our favorites, they'll continuously stir up the top layer as they filter the sand through their gills cleaning the sandbed as they go. Quite social (with people) and amusing to watch their antics.
    Every electronic device is manufactured with smoke stored deep inside... only a true genius can find a way to set it free.

    I have an Orange Spot Goby in my 75 reef and he constantly re-aquascapes my tank. Algae has no chance on my sand bed at all. He also has quite a personality all his own. My wife and i get a laugh when he picks up nassarius snails by the shell and carries them from where he is working to a distant location and tosses them against the glass!!
