They are tiny stocky-shaped fish with heads that are huge in comparison to their dimensions. There are numerous hues, but this one is black in color. They are a calm fish that is a great addition to an aquarium that has populations of corals with polyps because they love being in the water and hiding within the polyps. They can also nibble on the polyps in SPS corals.

The Black Clown Goby requires a 10-gallon or greater aquarium. They are not likely to become aggressive toward other fish, however, they can fight among their own species when they are in small aquariums. If the aquarium is big enough, groups of fish can be brought in simultaneously. If there is a branching coral The group will form couples that are mated. It is recommended that Clown Gobies are kept with other species of docile nature.

It is not uncommon for clown gobies to reproduce in aquariums. It is important to be cautious when the aquarium is home to Acropora Sp. as well as like SPS corals. They lay their eggs on the side of the branch that is beneath it that will trigger tissue recession in that region of the coral. In good conditions, corals will replenish the tissue it lost.

The Black Clown Goby’s diet must include a wide variety of brine shrimp and frozen mysis shrimp. table shrimp and frozen foods for carnivores.
