The Diamond Goby, Valenciennea puellaris, small brilliant orange diamond shapes across is pearl-descent white body. They are hardy and very peaceful and can be housed with other peaceful fish in a reef tank setting, but may become territorial towards other blennies, gobies or dartfish in smaller tanks.

Gobies tend to stay mainly towards the bottom of the tank, burrowing and sifting through the sand. However, this goby is also a known jumper, so a tightly fitting lid is suggested. Diet should include a variety of frozen or live mysis shrimp and vitamin enriched brine shrimp 1-2 times daily.

I am Very Pleased with the time it took and the quality of this fish received. The Diamond Goby is doing well after 11 days. Fish was very healthy! Love these fish!

I ordered this fish to help keep my sand bed clean. He does an amazing job, my sand is spotless. I was a bit concerned while researching this fish and some people said it spews sand all over your corals.Mine swims around all day gulping up sand and letting it gently fall out it's gills. He doesn't make a mess at all as he stays real close to the bottom of the tank.

Didn't see it the first couple of days but then I noticed some piles of sand and knew that it had found a home. Gets along well and is doing fine.
