Almost all gobies are reef safe so get one you like. If your rock is on the bottom a shrimp goby with a pistol shrimp is a ton of fun to watch. The cleaner gobies are also entertaining as they will hang on the side of the fish as they clean.

I have both a YWG and a bicolor. IMHO, no reef tank is complete without a couple gobies to entertain the guests.

Get whichever one(s) you like.
