Also known as the Orange Spotted Sleeper Goby or Diamond Watchman Goby. Although this territorial fish may be aggressive towards its own kind (unless a mater pair), it is rarely aggressive towards other fish. This goby can be prone to jumping especially if startled and there for it is recommended to secure your aquarium with a lid or other enclosure.
As with all marine fish, they benefit from a varied diet of vitamin enriched foods. The Spotted Watchman Goby's diet should consist of a variety of meaty foods such as brine shrimp, mysis shrimp or other frozen preparations. Over time Spotted Watchman Gobies may be acclimated to high-quality flake foods.
Gobies will also benefit greatly from live phytoplankton which is readily available to them in the wild.
