what is everyones experiences with burrowing gobies and fish such as jawfish or yellow watchman gobies. I am thinking of adding some to my tank with a bed of caulerpa prolifera but i wouldn't want them tearing out the plants. Let me know your opinions.

My YWG never bothered any macro's, if you pair with a pistol shrimp you may run into trouble my tiger pistol stole several of my small macro's. Caulerpa is probably to big for it to take but might uproot it if its near any of his den entrances.

The only problem I've seen so far is burying the plants next to the goby/shrimp hole. If you only had the fish I doubt that would be as much of a problem. I have a randalli and a tiger pistol in a 75 gal with what I think is a suntail goby.
