    Overview

    The head and body are yellow-orange with bright blue spots on the head and fins. The Watchman Goby wears an amusing perpetual frown, and likes to peek out from behind rocks. They have been known to form symbiotic relationships with snapping shrimp.

    It requires a 30 gallon or larger aquarium with plenty of loose coral rubble, ample swimming room, and a sand bottom for burrowing. Watchman Gobies are peaceful but can become aggressive and territorial with its own kind unless they are a mated pair. It may try to jump out of the aquarium or other small openings; therefore, a tight-fitting lid is required to prevent escape.

    The Watchman Goby should be fed a varied diet consisting of foods specifically designed for carnivores. If kept in a reef aquarium, the ORA Captive-Bred Watchman Goby should be fed once per day.
