Overview

Did you know that this specimen ships from our LiveAquaria® Wisconsin Facility, home of our popular Diver's Den® WYSIWYG Store and our LiveAquaria® Certified Captive Grown Corals (CCGC)? What that means is that you can rest assured knowing this specimen received the highest level of care from our experienced and professional LiveAquaria® staff!

PLUS, hobbyists that use our LiveAquaria® Professional Reef Salt have the added benefit knowing marine species shipped from our LiveAquaria® Wisconsin Facility share the same water parameters. In other words, if you use our Professional Reef Salt, marine species shipped from our Wisconsin Facility will acclimate and transition to your home aquarium with less stress to set the foundation for longer term success.

The Sleeper Blue Dot Goby, also known as the Ladder Glider, Ladder Goby, or Sixspot Sleeper Goby, has a white body with bright blue spots under the eyes and mouth.

In order to successfully care for this fish, it should be housed in a 30 gallon or larger aquarium with live sand as the substrate, and an attached populated refugium. It rarely will become aggressive towards other fish, but is territorial, and will fight with its own kind unless they are a mated pair.

The Sleeper Blue Dot Goby feeds off the bottom as it sifts through the sand eating mouthfuls of substrate and the food that lives within the sand. The diet should include a variety of live and frozen brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, live black worms, and prepared foods for carnivores, and it should be fed frequently.

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