The Catalina Goby, Lythrpnus dalli, is one of the most visually attractive goby species available for the home aquarium. Its colors and details are just absolutely striking. The fish has a bright red slender body punctuated by electric blue vertical stripes. The combination of bright red and neon blue make for quite the contrast making the Catalina Goby look like it has had its colors painted on. It has clear finnage. Though the Catalina Goby looks exotic, it actually is not a tropical fish - the Catalina Goby must be kept in temperate aquarium and if done they will be quite hardy and easy to care for.
The Catalina Goby has a unique reproductive trait. Both males and females exhibit both male and female reproductive tissue. This allows any Catalina Goby to act as a male or female during reproduction. Catalina Gobies will breed in small cavaties or caves within the tank so be sure to have live rock to allow for this is breeding is desired.
Catalina Goby Care Facts
The Catalina Goby MUST be kept in an aquarium ranging from 60-70 degrees Fahrenheit. This cannot be stressed enough. This makes it an ideal fish for a nano tank of the correct temperature.
More than one Catalina Goby can be kept together in a large enough aquarium (at least 50 gallons for two).
The Catalina Goby will accept most meaty prepared frozen foods including brine and mysis shrimp as well as quality pellet or flake food.
Because our Catalina Gobies are captive bred, they are especially accustomed to living in the home aquarium environment and have a better chance of successful acclimation.
