Overview

The Green Silk Gudgeon Dartfish, commonly referred to as the Green Gudgeon Goby originates from the reefs of the Maldives. They have an elongated body, which is an iridescent green color that can display blue markings on the head, face and gill plates. They enjoy being in pairs and make a wonderful fish for a fish only or reef aquarium.

It should be housed in a 30 gallon or larger aquarium with plenty of loose coral rubble and requires ample swimming room with a sand bottom for burrowing. It may try to jump out of the aquarium or other small opening, so a tight-fitting lid is required. Rarely will it become aggressive towards other fish.

It feeds mostly on prey suspended in the water column but will pick food off the substrate as well. The Green Silk Gudgeon Dartfish feeds on a diet which includes mysis shrimp, brine shrimp, table shrimp, and frozen food preparations for carnivores. It should be fed at least three times per day.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 1"-2-1/4; Medium: 2-1/4" to 3-1/2"; Large: 3-1/2" to 4-1/2"
