Diet[edit | edit source]

These Gobies are aufwuchs and algae grazers, they need to be in a mature tank with a lot of algae growth. They will, however, only eat certain types of algae, mostly short tufty types of algae, not stringy or filamentous algae. They should also accept algae wafers and dried marine seaweed. They may also accept some soft blanched veges like peas. They should not be fed meaty foods as their digestive system is not designed for high protein.


Feeding regime[edit | edit source]

Supplement once or twice a day depending on algae growth present.


Behaviour[edit | edit source]

Although they are peaceful they can be territorial with each other.
