The Sleeper Striped Goby originates among the rubble zones that surround coral reefs in the Indo Pacific. It’s white in appearance with neon, black, and green horizontal dots and dashes that extend the length of the body. Heads are also adorned in the same colors, adding interest for this particular species. It is a timid fish that can be a fantastic addition to reef aquariums and helps in maintaining the sandy bed.

It is recommended to keep it in 30 gallon or greater aquarium that has a fine to a medium-sized sand substrate. It uses shallow burrows within the substrate as refuges and keeps the substrate oxygenated. It does not usually become aggressive with other fish, but it is territorial and can fight with its own species unless they’re mated.

This Sleeper Banded Goby feeds off the bottom of the tank as sifts through the sand. The diet of this species should comprise an assortment of mysis and brine frozen bloodworms, shrimps, as well as prepared carnivore food items. It is recommended to feed it at least once a day.
