General info about Orange Stripe Prawn Goby

Its body is white, with orange spots that are outlined in brown. It is able to establish symbiotic alliances with nearly blind Alpheid shrimp. It is able to keep an eye as the shrimp digs a burrow to allow them to share. It’s ideal for aquariums that have plenty of hiding spots and plenty of swimming space. The aquarium must have a secure lid to stop it from jumping out. This Orange Spotted Goby adapts well to reef aquariums. However, it could pose a danger to tiny, delicate decorative shrimp. It favors the bed of fine sand as well as loose coral rubbles to sift through. It is possible for Orange Spotted Goby to spawn successfully in aquariums.
