Red Head Goby Information
The Red Head Goby’s native habitat extends between the Sea of Cortez to Ecuador. The tiny goby, as its name suggests, has an ebullient red head and transparent body. Inside the red coloring are vibrant gold and blue stripes.
The Red Head Goby is a cleaner goby and it’s not uncommon to observe individuals removing the parasites of other fish. At first, they appear to be a bit more obscure than their Caribbean counterparts, but when they become comfortable in their tank they prefer to remain in the open, with their bright head making it easy to recognize. Their tiny size and calm behavior make them ideal for small and large tanks alike.
