The Banded Shrimpgoby has vivid and stunning coloration, which makes it a gorgeous addition to any reef tank and captivates any onlooker. It is also commonly known as the Bullet Goby or Brown Barred Goby. Being petite in size, it is considered a good fish for a nano aquarium. The Banded Shrimpgoby loves to burrow under the sea bed and therefore a thick sand bed is required for it to thrive. It often shares its burrows symbiotically with Alpheus shrimps, which are almost blind, and will aid in digging out the Banded Shrimpgoby an extensive burrow and in return the gobies alert the shrimp to retreat if any invader comes closer to its proximity. It does well in small groups or pairs as long as it is added at the same time, so that it can establish its own territory within the aquarium. The diet includes a variety of live and frozen meaty foods such as brine shrimps, mysis shrimps, live black worms and pother prepared foods for carnivores. The Banded Shrimpgoby should not be kept in a tank less than 30 gallon and it prefers to have peaceful fishes in the tank along with many hiding places. Also, this Amblyeleotris sp. has been known to spawn successfully in an aquarium. It is also considered peaceful and a very good option for a reef tank or community fish tank. It looks lovely when it can be employed in a utility role in the reef aquarium as it will help keeping the upper layers of live sand stirred by taking mouthfuls and then expelling it through its gills.

The Red Stripe Goby has an elonagated pale colored body speckled in reds and blues. It has numerous red stripes along its body as well. These fish like to perch on sandy bottoms and are very easy to care These fish are also jumpers, so precautions should be taken to secure openings at the top of the aquarium. Keep only one per tank.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.
