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?

I Feed Frozen Mysis And Pellets. He Eats Mysis Because He Was Just Fed Brfore I Boughf Him. Out Of The Three Available, He Was The Smallest And Ate All The Food. 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.

I do. My dad has a 110 reef. I call it mine cuz me and him sort of work on it together but my nano is in my room and is only mine. I would never put a diamond goby in a ten gallon lol.

This goby is amazing. During feeding; I feed mysis in a baster. Well he goes up to the baster and opens his mouth for me to feed him! So I spot feed him, for now, while the others get scraps and floating pellets :)
