The natural habitat of the clown goby is in the branches of Acropora sp. corals.This is a perfect nano fish with a maximum length of 2 inches.Clown gobies are peaceful fish that generally do not get aggressive with other species, but may become aggressive with members of their own family. It is possible to keep more than one clown goby as long as they are introduced to the tank together.The clown goby will do well in a temperature of 74- 80 degrees.Do not keep with aggressive fish.Feed this fish a meaty dietsuch as enriched brine shrimp, mysis, finely chopped fish or shrimp flesh, and other various frozen carnivore foods, with one or two feedings per day.Gobies compose one of the largest family of fish in the ocean. These small fish live around reefs or on sandy flats. Many of the Gobies are known for their burrowing behavior. These fish use burrows in the sand for safety. Some of the Goby species are known to share their burrows with Pistol Shrimp; behavior that can be duplicated in the home aquarium. Most Gobies have cupped ventral fins that nearly join just below their gill plates that serve as perching mechanisms so the Goby can always be on the lookout in a resting position. The Goby is a tremendous addition to the home aquarium.
