overviewThe Greenbanded Goby formerly known as Gobiosoma multifasciatum, has since been reclassified as Elacatinus multifasciatus. This beautiful fish makes a wonderful addition to the smaller reef or fish only aquarium. This small peaceful species is a vivid green with thin iridescent green bands running vertically down the body. A white head with a brownish red band runs across each red eye.
The Greenbanded Goby should be housed in a 10 gallon or larger aquarium. Hovering around rockwork and décor, this species can be housed in small groups of 3 or more individuals.
It is common for the Greenbanded Goby to spawn in an aquarium, laying its eggs in a crevice or empty shell.
These gobies feed on a variety of live and frozen brine shrimp, frozen mysis shrimp, table shrimp, and frozen food preparations for carnivores.
