    There are a lot of different species of both types of fish, but generally you can keep them together.

    With any SW fish, there is no hard fast rule, even fish that usually live together may not in a specific tank. Always be prepared to find a new home for something that doesn't work out.

    well i know you cant keep most gobies together unless its a big tank or they're mated. blennies are bottom fish like gobies so wouldnt they fight? the goby is a gecko goby and the blenny would be a black sailfin blenny

    I have a Bi-colour Blenny who lives in a cave at the top and a Yellow Watchman Goby who lives in a cave at the bottom. They get along fine, but then, I don't think they've ever seen each other.

    Re: goby and blenny

    Thats going to be a bigger challenge. Talk a look thru here they list minimum tank size for each fish. You may end up with a couple of gobies. Good luck!

    I vote for the AWESOME looking clingfish! I had never heard of that one so I looked him up, now I want one! I'm not sure what he should be catagorized as on the compatibility chart though??
