The Firefish Goby, Nemateleotris magnifica, also known as the Firefish or the Fire Dartfish, features a yellow head and a body that gradiates from white to red and a characteristic elongated first ray on the forward dorsal fin. It is a timid fish that is best suited for smaller reef tanks. The Firefish Goby contains a swim bladder which allows it to seem to hover in place. Like other Goby species, the Firefish 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. They will eat a carnivorous diet consisting of zooplankton and chopped meaty foods.

Firefish were very pretty and healthy looking. Ordered 4 but only have one left. This one is eating well.

A very pretty and friendly fish. He is much more visible in my tank than I thought he'd be, swimming around with his tank mates!

I ordered 2 which was a mistake for a 37gal cube. They started fighting after an hour in the tank. Next morning 1 was missing and the other showed no signs of damage. Both fish were healthy and beautiful.

Shipped fast. Acclimated for 30 mins and fish is happy. very healthy and strong. i would suggest buying the biggest one even though it costs more. Totally worth it save time and money.

Bought two of these and one of the purplish Firefish, lost one of these after about 2 days. When I say lost I mean vanished, it was the biggest but I can only see about 60% of either overflow. So there maybe hope, I did find a jaw fish in first section of my sump once. All is well otherwise, whole order was healthy on arrival.

Purchased two of these little cuties. I already had two that I purchased from Saltwaterfish two years ago. They all swim around together happy as can be.

Was very shy at first and would hide in the rocks. In a week he has become much more social and is a beautiful addition to my nano.

What can I say it's a pretty fish. It Likes to hide but I get a kick out of seeing it pop up and move around. A must have I would say.
