Overview

The Cave Transparent Goby, also known as the Bridled Goby, is a native of the reefs in the Maldives and Fiji. They are often found in and about both hard and soft corals. This fish gets its name from its transparent appearance. The body of the fish is also covered in orange spots.

It requires a 10 gallon or larger aquarium preferably with branching coral. It will rarely become aggressive towards other fish, but will fight with its own kind in a smaller aquarium. Therefore, it is best if it is kept with other docile species.

The Cave Transparent Gobies are known to successfully spawn in an aquarium. They typically build a cave under a rock, where they lay their eggs upon the ceiling of the cave.

The diet of the Cave Transparent Goby should consist of a variety of brine shrimp, frozen mysis shrimp, table shrimp, and frozen food preparations for carnivores. If housed in a reef aquarium with live branching corals, it needs to be fed once a day. If housed in an aquarium without substrate, it will require several feedings per day.
