sp. and is considered reef safe. However, it may nip at the polyps or bases of Acropora sp. and other SPS corals. If the SPS dominated aquarium is not heavily stocked with very mature colonies, these fish may severely damage Acropora sp. It requires a 10 gallon or larger aquarium with branched corals, where it often rests for extended periods. The fish rarely becomes aggressive towards other species, but may fight with its own kind in smaller tanks. It is best to keep it with other docile species. The Citrinis Clown Goby is known to spawn in aquariums, but caution should be exercised if the tank contains Acropora sp. or similar SPS corals, as it will lay its eggs on the underside of the coral’s branch, which can cause tissue recession in that area of the coral. To maintain a healthy diet, the Citrinis Clown Goby should be fed a variety of foods, including brine shrimp, frozen mysis shrimp, table shrimp, and frozen food preparations for carnivores.
