Hi
Sorry I have no idea where I should post this but-
I have a 300L tank and just wanted some help with what corals to get.
At the moment I have: anemone, Zoas, Palys, birds nest, Montipora, pulsing xenia, Kenya tree, hammer coral, torch, and a toadstool all are smallfrags.
Are there any other corals that are pretty easy to keep and have nice colours maybe some red or blue. Thanks in advance

I’m aware you usually keep them on the bottom of the tank would a goby cause any problems with it by spitting sand everywhere?
To me it depends what type of goby and how much sand he moves. I had a diamond goby that moved astronomical amounts of sand and buried every thing before I got rid of him. My uncle has one too that just stays near his little cave. You can also get a baseball sized rock and attach them to that. So that way they’re off the sand bed a couple inches and shouldn’t get buried.

I have a diamond watchman goby (yes the famous coral burying mahine) and it doesn't bury larger piece plus some smaller pieces can shed sand just experiment. My 1 headed duncan frag might not be able to make it but my encrusting monti and my 2 headed candy cane frag can shed sand. Trust me those decent size acan colonies can make it and if it does ever struggle shift it up a bit. It can be done.
