The Barbershop Shrimpgoby is commonly referred as the hi-fin red banded goby, and the yellow rose goby. It grows up to 2 inches and makes a good addition to a smaller tank. Its most distinctive feature is an elongated first ray on the forward dorsal fin that is almost half the length of the entire body. It is used to wedge the shrimpgoby into a burrow for safety from predators. The Barbershop Shrimpgoby is peace loving and is shy in nature, therefore it is absolutely safe to keep in your home tanks with other inhabitants. It has good jumping ability and is known to jump from pool to pool, so a covered tank is recommended. The Barbershop Shrimpgoby prefers a coral environment, lots of hiding places and a coral sand substrate for burrowing in. This species should be housed with passive fish only, and if kept with extremely active fish it will constantly hide. As a whole, the Barbershop Shrimpgoby attributes beauty, peaceful, harmless, and easy to maintain which in all makes it a valuable addition to your aquarium. The Barbershop Shrimpgoby is a carnivore, and eats zooplankton, finely chopped and other quality flake foods. It will not touch corals and are too small to eat most crustaceans, so they are reef safe. It is found that the Barbershop Shrimpgoby shares its burrow with other species of shrimp gobies along with pistol shrimps.
