The Diamond Goby is also known as the Pretty Prawn, Maiden, Orange Spotted
Diamond, Orange-dashed, or Orangespotted Sleeper Goby.
Goby has a white body with orange spots.
To be successful
with the Engineer Goby requires an established 30 gallon or larger aquarium
with plenty of live rock and a sandy substrate so it can burrow. It needs plenty
of hiding places and peaceful tankmates. It rarely becomes aggressive towards
other fish, but is territorial, and will fight with its own kind unless they
are a mated pair.
Goby feeds off the bottom, sifting through the sand keeping it oxygenated. It
should be fed a varied diet including a variety of live and frozen brine
shrimp, mysis shrimp, live black worms, and prepared foods for carnivores.
