The Purple Firefish Goby, Nemateleotris decora, has a lavender/white body with purple markings on the face and dark red and purple colored fins. They are very hardy and peaceful,  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 tight fitting lid is suggested. Diet should include a variety of frozen or live mysis shrimp and vitamin enriched brine shrimp 1-2 times daily.

Very beautiful fish, has adapted very well

Awesome fish, if a little shy during the day. When the moonlights in my tank come on, she perks right up and plays in the current from my powerheads. She arrived on time, and mostly unstressed, was eating mysis shrimp by day 2. Would recommend this fish to anyone looking for something pretty to add to a peaceful tank.
