The ORA® Captive-Bred 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.
The ORA® Captive-Bred Cave Transparent Goby has other unique advantages over wild-harvested species. For one, the Captive-Bred Cave Transparent Goby is very hardy and more accustomed to conditions found in home aquariums. Therefore, it makes a great choice for novices and seasoned aquarists alike. The ORA® Captive-Bred Cave Transparent Goby can also be kept with a variety of other captive-bred gobies, if introduced into the aquarium at the same time.
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 diet of the ORA® Captive-Bred 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.
