Overview

The Orange Stripe Prawn Goby, also known as Randall's Shrimp Goby, was first discovered in the Western Pacific in 1978 by Hoese and Steene. The body is white with orange stripes, with one orange stripe over the eyes and around its entire head. The male may be identified by the fan-like dorsal fin that bares a dramatic eyespot.

It requires an aquarium of 10 gallons or larger in size. It is a peaceful fish, but may occasionally quarrel with conspecifics if kept together, or if the tank is too small. When first added to an aquarium it may not eat for several days, but will usually acclimate and begin eating. It is not aggressive towards other shrimp gobies and may even share a burrow with another species.

It is possible for the Orange Stripe Prawn Goby to spawn successfully in an aquarium. They may also form a symbiotic relationship with any pistol shrimp.

The diet should consist of a variety of mysis shrimp, vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, and chopped table shrimp. It needs to be fed at least twice per day.

Approximate Purchase Size: 1" to 2"

Customer Testimonials

It took 4 weeks for my tiger pistol shrimp and orange stripe goby to bond, but they finally did. Unfortunately they live together at the back of my tank, where it's somewhat difficult to see them.

We love this fish. After a short acclimation, he's been bold and always up front in my 95 gallon reef. He regularly displays his large dorsal fin -- magnificent. Not a picky eater either. I highly recommend this guy.
Steven Norvich Barrington , IL
Terrific pair of fish that thrive in my reef tank. They will adopt tiger pistol (or other pistol) shrimp. They hang out as a pair and are tolerant of other shrimp gobies. Highly recommended. Very decorative.
