Overview

The head and lower body of the Golden Neon Goby, also called the Yellow Prow Goby, and Yellowstripe Cleaning Goby, are yellow. The dorsal body is black with a horizontal gold stripe.

It should be housed in a 10 gallon or larger aquarium. Rarely will it become aggressive towards other fish, but is territorial, and will fight with its own kind unless they are a mated pair. It is a hardy cleaner species that will service tank mates, cleaning them of parasites, which may help control some diseases, such as Ich.

It feeds on a variety of live and frozen brine shrimp, frozen mysis shrimp, table shrimp, and frozen food preparations for carnivores. If kept in a reef tank, the Golden Neon Goby should be fed once a day.

It is common for the Golden Neon Goby to spawn in an aquarium, laying its eggs in a crevice or empty shell.

Approximate Purchase Size: 3/4" to 1-1/2"
