Flagfin Pinkbar Goby
The Pinkbar Goby is commonly known as the Shrimp Goby due to its close association with various types of shrimp. Its body is silver with pink rings, and it has a yellowish tail with bright pink dots outlined in blue. To provide proper care, the Pinkbar Goby should be housed in a 10-gallon or larger aquarium with loose coral rubble and ample swimming space. The aquarium should have a sand substrate to allow the goby to burrow. It is important to provide a tight-fitting lid to prevent the goby from jumping out of the aquarium or through small openings. While the Pinkbar Goby is not typically aggressive towards other fish, it may fight with its own kind, except for a mated pair. The Pinkbar Goby primarily feeds on prey suspended in the water column but will also eat food from the substrate. Its diet should include mysis shrimp, brine shrimp, table shrimp, and frozen food preparations for carnivores, and it should be fed at least three times per day.
