Sleeper Striped Goby Information
The Sleeper Striped Goby originates among the rubble zones around coral reefs in the Indo Pacific. It’s white in appearance with a variety of neon, black and green horizontal dots, and dashes that extend across the body. Its head is adorned in the same colors, adding to the appeal of this species. It’s a very shy fish that is wonderful in a reef aquarium and can help maintain the sandy bed.
It is recommended to keep it in an aquarium that is 30 gallons or more that has a fine or medium-sized sand substrate. It uses shallow burrows that are buried in the substrate to provide refuges and keep the substrate oxygenated. It is not often aggressive toward other fish, however, it is territorial, and may fight with its own species unless they are a couple.
