Description

The ORA® Captive-Bred Sharknose Goby is a brightly-colored cleaner goby species sure to make a wonderful addition to your reef or nano-aquarium setup. Though similar in appearance to the Neon Goby (Elacatinus oceanops), the ORA Captive-Bred Sharknose Goby features bright yellow coloration (most prominent near the head) that blends beautifully into the electric blue stripe giving it a striking, two-tone effect. Like most fish, the coloration of the ORA Captive-Bred Sharknose Goby is influenced by lighting, diet, as well as environmental conditions.

The ORA Captive-Bred Sharknose Goby should be housed in a well-established 10 gallon or larger aquarium. Rarely will it become aggressive towards other fish. However, the ORA Captive-Bred Sharknose Goby is territorial and will demonstrate aggression towards its own kind unless they are a mated pair.

In the wild, a portion of a Cleaner Goby’s natural diet consists of parasites picked off larger reef fish. The ORA Captive-Bred Sharknose Goby should be fed a varied diet consisting of foods specifically designed for carnivores. If kept in a reef aquarium, the ORA Captive-Bred Sharknose Goby should be fed once per day.
