The Hector's Goby, Elacatinus puncticulatus, features a bluish-black body with bright yellow horizontal stripes and an eyespot on the dorsal fin. 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. Diet should include a variety of frozen or live mysis shrimp and vitamin enriched brine shrimp 1-2 times daily.
2/10/15. Fascinating fish. It was shy at first and took a few days to start exploring. Now it is swimming in all partes of the tank.
