The Engineer Goby, Pholidychtys luecotaenia, also known as the Convict Worm Goby, Pacific Neon Goby, Convict Worm Blenny, features a long skinny body with varying body marks through different periods of its life. Generally, the Engineer Goby has a black body with a white horizontal stripe. Like other similar species, the Engineer 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 Engineer Goby is disease resistant. They eat a carnivorous diet consisting of frozen meaty foods and may sometimes nibble on small fish and inverts. They can breed successfully in captivity with a spawning frequency of 8-28 days. Able to be kept in pairs or singly, the Engineer Goby is a great community fish for its unique beauty and hardiness.
so if ur afraid of an eel messing up your tank this guy is perfect he will get big and is eel looking but goby peaceful eh likes to dig holes and have a cave area under rocks

O.K. Not a very complicated fish.

This engineer goby remained visible for about three days. It was eating, then promptly disappeared! I am guessing he is being reclusive as most engineer gobies are.
I'll keep an eye out and update when he reappears.

I have bought several of this fish. Had one that lived 10 years in the same tank (55 gal.). I had another live three years in a 20 gallon. It is a simple fish, but fun to watch. And they are cheap!

moves almost like an eel but looks like a giant freshwater neon....they do dig so don't get a herd of them....mine "built" right on the front glass, so it is like watching an ant farm....
