Orange Spotted Goby (Amblyeleotris guttata) Care
The Orange Spotted Goby, Amblyeleotris guttata, is also known as the Spotted Prawn-Goby and Orange Spotted Goby. These fish come from the Western Pacific Ocean. They have an off-white body with many small bright orange spots.
These gobies are carnivores and require a diet rich in meaty foods, such as mysis and brine shrimp and other types of fresh or frozen chopped seafood. They will normally eat any zooplankton they can find floating in the water column.
Orange Spotted Gobies require an aquarium of 10 gallons or larger with plenty of live rock for hiding and a deep sand bed. They are known to jump and will leap out of tanks without a lid. They are peaceful fish and should not be kept with aggressive fish.
They are reef safe and will not bother corals, fish, but will eat tiny invertebrates.
