Broadstripe Goby Info
Cleaner gobies are very popular with aquarists due to their vibrant colors and the practice of “cleaning” parasites off their bodies. The most common parasites include isopods called gnathiids (this species is a non-predator and does do not consume or manage protozoan parasites like “ich”). It is interesting to note that much predatory fish which could easily eat the goby let it pass without injury. Broadstripe cleaner goby (like other cleaner gobies) is not a problem in captivity because it is well-adapted to conditions in the aquarium.
