The Panda Goby is usually found among the branches of Pocillopora coral colonies. They are a small stocky shaped fish with a very large head for their size, and are black, white and yellow in color. They are a peaceful fish that makes a wonderful addition to a reef aquarium containing colonies of polyp corals, as they enjoy swimming and hiding amongst the polyps. However, they may nip at the polyps of SPS corals.
It requires a 10 gallon or larger aquarium with at least one Pocillopora coral and some shaded areas for the fish to hide. It will rarely become aggressive towards other fish. Therefore, it is best if it is kept with other docile species.
The Panda Goby's diet should consist of a variety of small, meaty foods such as brine shrimp, minced frozen mysis shrimp, and other frozen food preparations for carnivores.
