just got a 5g tank (not set up/ cycled yet) and am looking for fish suggestions to start planning, want something different yet personable. maybe a clown goby or another kind of goby.

bang guy

Clown Goby, Neon Goby, or Barnacle Blenny. Those are the only fish I know of that will do OK in a 5 gal.
thanks this is gonna be a "family" tank so we were going through the damsels and small gobies to see and my cousins saw the green clown and were like yeah that one, so thats probably what it will be. thanks again
