The Orange Spotted Shrimpgoby attributes vivid and stunning coloration, which makes it a gorgeous addition to any reef tank and captivates any onlooker. It is also commonly known as Orange Spot, or the Spotted Prawn Goby. Being petite in size, it is considered a good fish for a nano aquarium. The Orange Spotted Shrimpgoby loves to burrow under the sea bed and therefore a thick sand bed is required for it to survive. It often shares its burrows symbiotically with Alpheus shrimps, which are almost blind, and will aid in digging out the Orange Spotted 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 Orange Spotted Shrimpgoby should not be kept in a tank not less than 30 gallon and it prefers to have peaceful fishes in the tank along with many hiding places. Also, the Amblyeleotris guttata has been known to spawn successfully in an aquarium. It is also considered peaceful, but it is possible threat to small ornamental shrimp.

Photo by Saltwaterfish.com member, Nicole Duncan.This fish is white with orange spots outlined in brown. It will form symbiotic partnerships with nearly blind alpheid shrimp. It provides a watchful eye while the shrimp digs a burrow for them to share. This fish will grow to 4 inches in length.Although this fish is a bottom level swimmer, provide rockwork for hiding places and room to swim. Provide a sandy substrate. Cover the aquarium, this fish may jump out.It is rarely aggressive towards other fish, however it is territorial, and will fight with others of the same species unless they are a mated pair.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.
