It needs plenty of room to swim and a bottom that is sand to allow for burrowing. It rarely becomes aggressive toward other fish, however, it is territorial and fights with its own species unless they are a couple.

It is recommended that the Scissortail Goby diet should include finely chopped or shaved fish, brine shrimp, and mysis shrimp.
