Nano Goby

The Red Spotted Goby originating from the reefs of Cebu is a rare find in the industry. They are smaller gobies, only reaching a total length of 1 inch. Their body is opaque in color with many red irregularly shaped spots. Their eyes are very large for their size and are also spotted in red and gold. They are very active and peaceful gobies that will make a wonderful addition to the saltwater reef, nano or fish only aquarium.

It should be kept in a 10-gallon or larger aquarium with plenty of live rock for hiding and as a supplemental food source. Small groups, or pairs, tend to do better in an aquarium, but need to be introduced to the tank simultaneously. Do not house these gobies with larger, aggressive fish or invertebrates.

The diet should consist of a variety of fresh or frozen seafood, brine shrimp, and mysis shrimp.

  1. This is a wonderful and friendly little fish! Ours always swims up to the glass when we approach and is always hanging out on the rocks in full view. It’s fun to watch him clean the fish as well.

  2. I got one of these a couple of months ago and love how he cleans my large Angelfish of ich and other things growing on the body. I would think that these little fish would be great for someone with ich prone Tangs. When I put my arm in the tank the little fish comes and tries to clean my arm. My goby also eats any food that the other fish in the tank eat. I highly recommend this hardy little fish.
