Because of its tiny size, it is a great fish to have around. Firefish Goby makes a great supplement to the reef’s smaller system.

In the wild, it is common to see large groups that hover over the reefs, collecting planktonic foods that drift by. The gentle saltwater fish is shy and when in nature, has a “bolt-hole” which it swiftly hides in when threatened. In the home aquarium, the Firefish Goby needs multiple safety areas in rocky crags or outcrops that it can swim to if stressed. This species of the Gobiidae family is usually not antagonistic towards other tank mates unless those belonging to its species. But, a mated pair may live happily together.

To recreate its natural habitat, the Firefish Goby requires a 20-gallon or greater system that has moderate lighting conditions and a moderate flow that is flowing through the rocks of its reef tank. Be aware that a stressed Firefish is likely to try and jump out of the aquarium. Therefore, keep your Firefish Goby in aquarium systems with lids.

Alongside zooplankton and algae that are growing in the aquarium the nutrition for Goby Firefish Goby should consist of brine shrimp that is vitamin-rich (live or frozen) Mysis shrimp and prepared marine food.
