Sleeper Banded Bullet Goby Care Facts

Care Level: Easy
Temperament: Peaceful
Diet: Carnivore
Reef Safe: Yes
Minimum Tank Size: 30 gallons
Max Size: 6 inches
The Sleeper Banded Bullet Goby, Amblygobius phalaena, features a yellow/white head with blue, orange, and brown dots along with stripes across a grey body. 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. Diet should include a variety of frozen or live mysis shrimp and vitamin enriched brine shrimp 1-2 times daily. 

The fish I got was 4" and very healthy. He has claimed and tiny crevice in the rockwork, but never harms any other fish in defending it. I have also run into the problem of him spitting sand all over any low-lying corals. He does do a good job of sifting the sand for any leftover food.

The fish I received was of good size and excellent health. I had a previous Sleeper Banded Bullet who lived for years and I was sad to see him finally go. But this new one acclimated very well and is good fit for my tank and the gravel/sand is also better for having him/her.
