Neon Goby

The Neon Goby is a very hardy fish, and because its small size, is a great addition to a small reef tank. It should be housed in a 10-gallon or larger aquarium. It is a cleaner species which will service tank mates and help control some diseases. Rarely will it become aggressive towards other fish, but it is territorial, and will fight with its own kind unless they are a mated pair. It is common for the Neon Goby to spawn in an aquarium, laying its eggs in a crevice or empty shell. It feeds on a variety of live and frozen brine shrimp, frozen mysis shrimp, table shrimp, and frozen food preparations for carnivores. If kept in a reef tank, the Neon Goby should be fed once per day.

    These are very small fish. 1.5" long and just over 1/8 round." The two I have stick together so I wonder if I should have a few more so the nice blue color is more noticeable. They don't swim a lot and in fact seem to be heavier than water and don't equalize well. They do get after pods in the rocks and then go find a place to park for a while.
