They are found in groups or singly and are a sand shifting goby. What size reef do you have him in? He may not eat flakes. So make sure you have some frozen mysis.

I would just make sure that your sand bed is really established and that he has no competition for the same sand sifting habits. Once he is acclimated he may take to frozen foods. Did you see one at your Local Fish Store?

One,Did Not And The Big One Was Too Big. The Tank Is 29 Gallons and Is 1.5 Years Old With An Established Coepepod Community. He And A Small Nassirius Snail Are The Only Sand Creatures.

As long as he eats you should be golden. Odd looking fish. I have never seen one before.
