Gobies are generally peaceful bottom-dwelling fish. Some gobies get territorial and will defend “their area” of the tank against other fish; these gobies should not be kept with others of the same or a similar species.

Most gobies are not picky eaters. They can be fed a variety of small meaty foods like brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, Cyclopeeze, planktons and similar items. They will also eat some plant matter like a variety of algaes and can be given these as a supplement. Some may eventually accept flake and pellet foods.
