Saltwater 10

What type of cheap and pretty goby should i keep in a 10 gallon with some peppermint shrimp?

I am getting a saltwater 10 gallon and i want a cheap and pretty goby to go in the 10 gallon. How many could i have because i am totally new to saltwater and don't be rude. How many gobies and how many shrimp can i have once you have listed the species of pretty goby.

Most goby do not like other goby, so you are usually limited to one of any species that resemble each other, or a mated pair.
The catalina goby are some of the most striking goby, but do not get them with peppermint shrimp or any other tropical animal; catalina goby are coldwater and suffer at temps above 70f. Sometimes a low end tropical below 75F can manage some corals and shrimp and a Catalina goby, just be selective on tropicals and Catalinas that are compatible at say 74F. If you are doing a room temp or chilled tank, they are very awesome fish! They are territorial against each other though, and there are not many other cold water saltwater fish on the market, so it can be a pretty bare tank.

The watchman goby is very bright and a wonderful fish. They are one of many shrimp goby that will pair with a pistol shrimp, like a tiger pistol shrimp. They make very cool and interesting pairs in the little tanks.

Clown goby are very neat and stay very small. They tend not to tolerate each other though.

Hector's Goby and the Court Jester Goby are very cute little goby as well.

Three peppermint shrimp should be a nice combination for shrimp but more is fine.

There are several other small fish, like a few blenny, that can work in a 10 gallon. I adore the tail spot blenny. It will eat a little algae, and spends most its day lounging in the rock, or poking it's head out of a cave.

Firefish are another very pretty nano fish. Again, they are territorial, but a single one or mated pair look great in a 10 gallon.

There are also a few small wrasse, cardinalfish, and basselt that are an option in a 10 gallon. Jawfish are also cool, but are known jumpers and often end up in the floow when kept in a small or short tank.

Realistically you can do several shrimp, but only a few small species of fish, and of any species, one is usually the limit or a mated pair.
