Yellow clown goby and green clown gobies

Are these guys safe and if not what are the chances they will nip? And at what kind of corals?

I have three yellows and two greens, along with assorted SPS and LPS in my 90, and have yet to see a nip. It's a roll of the dice, as others have reported trouble.

Always quarantine. You never know where that fish has been.

Current Tank Info: 90 and 120 mixed reef

I had an LFS refuse to sell me a yellow clown goby because I told him I had two acros. Apparently he had one in the past that was a terror and thus refuses to sell them to people with SPS. I don't know of problems with other corals.

I had problems with a yellow clown goby nipping at my sps. As soon as I put him in there he started going to town on them.

We are forever responsible for that which we tame...

Current Tank Info: 90 gallon
