Wheeler’s Goby

SKU: AO6536Categories: Goby, Saltwater Fish

In 1982, Hoese and Randall first discovered the Wheeler’s Shrimp Goby, also known as Wheeler’s Prawn, Gorgeous, or Wheeler’s Goby, in Indonesia. This fish has a white body with broad orange-red bands and tiny blue spots, and the dorsal fin is adorned with red and blue dots. For the Wheeler’s Shrimp Goby to thrive, it should be housed in an aquarium with a sand-covered bottom, with a minimum size of 10 gallons. This will allow the fish to burrow and create shelter. It prefers peaceful tank mates and plenty of hiding places. While small groups or pairs are better suited for aquarium life, they must be introduced to the tank at the same time. The Wheeler’s Watchman Goby is relatively hardy and highly resistant to diseases. It has also been known to spawn successfully in an aquarium. To maintain optimal health, the Wheeler’s Shrimp Goby should be fed twice daily with a varied diet that includes fresh or frozen seafood, brine shrimp, and mysis shrimp.
