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.
