Hey there everyone! I’ve had my mind made of for a while on getting a orange diamond foby for sand sifting. I’ve been told also that if I don’t have enough algae growth it could potentially die and rather fast in my 24g nano … what are some options I have besides snails. Which shrimp would serve its purpose and last if that’s an option. I’ve also heard sailfin blennies? I’ve taken a liking to them and would love to own one, but they are said to not get along with gobies. I’m at a crossroads..

I have a diamond goby in my frag system. Keeps the sand clean and eats anything I put in the tank.

How many gallons is your frag system and is he/her the only fish in this system?
System is 36x24x12 so 45g's plus 40 breeder sump, around 60 g's.
I clown that lives in a 18 headed frogspawn and a 6 line wrasse.
