This member of the Goby family is a small marine fish stay mainly on lower and mid water and makes home in the sand .
Many species are excellent sand shifter , sucking in mouthful of sand and filtering out the detritus and expel clean sand thro the gills.
Need fine Sandy base and good water flow, Swim in Pair in the sea. Looks best in a pair so they are brave to stay in front aquarium .
The water parameters need to be constant. You should check water conditions often, as the quicker a change is detected, the easier it will be to put right again.
Water changes of at least 25% should be done every 2 weeks, and even more for smaller aquariums.
Excess food should be removed to prevent algal growth and nitrite/nitrate sickness. Visible algae can be cleaned using a suitable magnet cleaner.
Survival Note ; beside eating detritus in sand , need to supplement with Reefmax 0.5 or 2 mm pellet , make sure some pellets land on the sand .
