Diet & Feeding:
The Orangemarked Goby stirs the sand as it sifts through it, straining out food (mostly small crustaceans). Its diet should include a variety of live and frozen brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, live black worms, and prepared foods for carnivores.
Characteristics & Compatibility:
This Goby sifts sand as it plows its way through the substrate, keeping the substrate oxygenated. It is rarely aggressive towards other fish, however it is territorial, and will fight with others of the same species unless they are a mated pair.
