The Yellow Clown Goby, Gobiodon okinawae, also known as the Yellow Goby, is a small, peaceful fish that is easy to care for. It features a yellow/orange body with unique markings across its face. They can be kept singly or in pairs. Like other Goby species, the Yellow Clown Goby will often create its own burrow in the sand - sometimes these burrows are shared in a symbiotic relationship with the Pistol Shrimp. Therefore, a tank with plenty live rock, a sandy substrate, and a tightly sealed lid to prevent escapes is recommended. The Yellow Clown Goby should not be housed with larger predatory fish for its small size could easily make it prey. They will take a carnivorous diet of small frozen foods. Overall, a great easy to care for reef safe fish.
I had two of these little guy's and my wife named them Fritz and Frank. They do have a tremendous amount of personality!However , when I moved them into a larger tank, Frank murdered fritz.Do not know why. perhaps Fritz pissed off frank. We'll never know. frank continues to be a good tank mate to the other fish though. Just keep one in a tank.
Of all the fish I own, this little guy is my favorite. I named mine Peeps because he's yellow like the Easter Peeps candy and because he sits in the strangest places peeping out and watching the rest of his tankmates! He is a fearless and friendly fish. Oftentimes he will sit on top of my hand while I'm cleaning the tank or moving a coral. Pure pesonality!
First one arrived DOA. Saltwater promptly refunded us. Eventually ordered another one when we ordered our anemone. Arrived healthy and has been eating. Very cool little guy. Very happy so far.
