Diamond Goby Small
The Diamond Watchman Goby is also known as the Pretty Prawn, Maiden, Orange Spotted Diamond, Orange-dashed, or Orangespotted Sleeper Goby. It was first discovered in 1956 by Tomiyama in the Indo-Pacific Ocean. This fish has a white head and body with orange spots and is quite timid, making it a great addition to a reef tank due to its longevity. To provide adequate care, the Diamond Watchman Goby should be housed in a 30-gallon or larger aquarium with live sand substrate and an attached populated refugium. This fish uses shallow burrows in the substrate as a refuge, which helps to oxygenate the substrate. While it is not usually aggressive towards other fish, it can be territorial and may fight with its own kind, except for a mated pair. The Diamond Watchman Goby feeds by sifting through the sand on the bottom. Its diet should consist of a variety of live and frozen brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, live black worms, and prepared foods for carnivores, and it should be fed frequently.
