Could i put two blennies in a 75? My stocking list for blennies/gobies was: one diamond goby, one sleeper head, one algae blenny. Will this work?

How deep is your sand bed?
How old is your tank?


The diamond goby and the sleeper head may or may not get along but if both will be added they MUST be added at the same time

The algae blenny must be in a well established tank enless they are eating flakes mysis ect from the LFS

If you took the sand out of the display and moved it into rubbermaids and it was 4 inches deep to begin with, you're probably in for a TON of trouble when you put it back in your display. When you mix the sand after that long, you kill off the bacteria in the sand. You're gonna need to either rinse that sand, well WASH, it like crazy in RO/DI water OR buy new sand. I wouldnt put it straight back into the display.

And as it is now, its probably going to start in the rbubermaid.

If you follow the good advice above, you will also need to wait until your sand bed is re-established before adding any sand sifting gobies into the tank as there won't be anything for them to eat.

Why'd you take it all out of the tank?

Just to point out, this is only one blenny and two gobies.

In answer to your blenny question - if you decide to put multiple blennies in your tank, you are best off if they are from different genera.
