The Blue Spot Shrimpgoby is territorial, unless it is given a large well established tank with cleverly decorated space. It is not compatible with triggers and should however never be kept with aggressive species. The Blue Spot Shrimpgoby often forms symbiotic relationship with shrimps, who digs a cave while the goby keeps an eye out for predators and warns the shrimp if one approaches. The Blue Spot Shrimpgoby communicates mainly using its antennae, and lives together in the cave happily. To establish this relationship in the tank, you simply need to introduce both of them in a well decorated tank with lots of rock work. Adding several shrimps to the aquarium increases the chance of your pairing up with one of them. The Blue Spot Shrimpgoby is a hardy animal, which is also disease resistant and can be recommended for beginner marine aquarists. It is also very easy to feed and care for, which makes it a valuable addition to your reef tank. If a single goby has to be kept then introduce it in a 20 gallon tank, but if you wish to keep a pair then a minimum 60 gallon is required. The aquarium should be decorated with a lot of open areas as well as a lot of suitable caves and hiding places. The Blue Spot Shrimpgoby is a very good jumper and therefore keeping it in a covered aquarium is advised. It does well in reef aquarium but may not be considered 100% reef safe, since it tends to eat small shrimp unless properly fed. It might bully wrasses and small passive fishes.
