Steinitz Goby (Amblyeleotris steinitzi) Care
The Steinitz Goby, Amblyeleotris steinitzi, is also known as the Steinitz’ Prawn Goby. These fish come from the Indo-Pacific region. They have a white-tan body with orange to tan thick vertical bands and blue 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.
Steinitz 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.
