The Engineer Goby, Pholidychtys luecotaenia, has a black body with a white horizontal stripe. They are very hardy and 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.

The Engineer Goby spends most of the time hiding . They willl move your substrate so be aware your rocks may all move when is done digging I have 200 gallon reef and was not aware of what they can do. I was told they wont move that much grave around. I am in process of taking my tank down just to get him out of it. cool looking but not worth the worry of catching him if you have to.
