That is a Catalina Goby.

Yes, a Catalina Goby. The Wellsi is in my seahorse tank which I keep at 70-72F. That is the top temp range for these gobies. They'd prefer 65F.

With regard to the temp, both the Wellsi and a frag of that merletti seem to be growing very well in this tank at the lower temp.

I just got a small blasto merletti as a free frag with a coral order and it hasn't opened yet. It's on the bottom of a 24 inch deep tank with 5x39 T5's that are 6 inches from the top of the tank. They are in a shaded spot. Should I be patient or worried?

Get it under the light, but on the bottom of the tank. It should do fine if your tank conditions are right...

I had it out in the light on the bottom and the guy who I got it from told me to put it in the shade! My conditions are fine -- as far as I know -- haven't measured in a week. My elegane is happy -- and that's my canary coral! It's not in the dark -- just shaded by a gorg sea fan...
