My 90 gallon hillstream goby setup


Hey folks, just joined here on the recommendations of a friend, and figured I'd post some photos of my favorite setup to share with you good folks. Sorry for not uploading them directly to the site or imbedding them, but I really didn't have the wherewithal to resize everything before uploading. Hope I'm not breaking any rules by linking to an offsite gallery.

Wow! Welcome to the forum. You're a friend of Rachels correct? Love the shots, especially the amano. So shiny and clean. Those are some very nice gobies you have in there.

Thanks! These guys have quickly become my favorite thing in the hobby. Not an afterthought fish though, they really need a designated setup.

Lol, you finally talked me into it. You should come check it out in person next time you're picking up a shipment around here.

Kinda figured. I think any goby needs a designated setup. But still I am adding to my dream list. lol

Wow that's amazing. I think I saw this tank or some of these fish a while back before you had it so nicely scaped. I love that algae patina on the rocks. I had that going in a tank once and it took a long time for it to develop nice like that.

Those are some of the most beautiful fish I have ever seen. Your tank is also very natural looking and healthy. I love all of it!
