The ORA® Captive-Bred Tiger Goby brings credence to the saying "Big things come in small packages." This diminutive goby makes the perfect addition to the nano and pico reef aquarium, adding visual interest to the often neglected lower regions of the aquarium. The ORA Captive-Bred Tiger Goby brings activity with its quirky movement characteristic of goby species and captures your attention with its namesake tiger like appearance.

The ORA® Captive-Bred Tiger Goby features black vertical stripes upon its translucent silver body coloration. While seemingly ferocious in name, the Tiger Goby is reef safe and will not harm corals. Because of its small adult size, Tiger Gobies are best kept with other non-aggressive fish in nano and pico reef tanks but also makes a great addition to any reef system.

The ORA® Captive-Bred Tiger Goby should be housed in a well-established 10 gallon or larger aquarium. The ideal setup should be aquascaped generously with live rock and coarse coralline-encrusted rubble. Tiger Gobies are peaceful; however, can be territorial and demonstrate aggression towards its own kind unless they are a mated pair.

The ORA® Captive-Bred Tiger Goby should be fed a varied diet consisting of foods specifically designed for carnivores. If kept in a reef aquarium, the ORA Captive-Bred Sharknose Goby should be fed once per day.

Approximate Purchase Size: 1"-2".
