The Sand Sifting Gobies (Valenciennea strigata) have a lot of names including Sleeper Gold Head Goby and also just referred to as the Sleeper Gobies. To be successful they should be kept in a 30 gallon or larger aquarium with live sand as the substrate. They rarely will become aggressive towards other fish, but are territorial, and will fight with its own kind unless they are a mated pair. They primarily feed off the bottom by sifting through the sand eating mouthfuls of substrate and the food that lives within the sand, keeping the sand clean. This group of Gobies feed on a variety of live and frozen brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, and live black worms.
