    i would like to know if i can put a mandarin goby in a three gallon tank with a baby damsel

    Three gallons is really small even for nano. Unless you have access to a mandarin that eats prepared food its not really a good idea to put them in anything less than a 55 that's stocked with a large pod culture. In a 3 gallon it might last a fee weeks before it eventually starved. They peck and eat constantly at copepods.

    I wouldn't.

    As per sharkdude, they are very finnicky, and need a good sustained pod population (not to mention an extremely well established system)

    Honestly I can't think of very many sw fish that is suitable for a 3 gallon system that isn't very rare or expensive.

    Here are some suggestions that may work: Dracula goby (expensive), Lotilia/whitecap goby (expensive),yashagoby, trimmaor eviotagobies, barnacle blenny, yellow clown goby, red head goby, green banded goby

    3 gallons? I wouldn't put anything other than a live food culture in a 3 gallon.

    I have a yellow clown goby and a damsel and they are fine together.
