Yellow Rose Goby
Scientific Name: Stonogobiops nematodes
Reef Compatibility: Yes
Minimum Tank Size: 10 gal
Max Size: 2"
Food/Feeding: CarnivoreNotes: The Yellow Rose Goby is also referred to as the Hi Fin Red Banded Goby, Striped Goby, or the Blackray Shrimp Goby. The body has a silver-white coloration with a yellow face and very distinct dark diagonal stripes across the body. They are a wonderful fish for a passive fish only or reef aquarium, and may form a symbiotic relationship with a pistol shrimp.
The ideal environment is an aquarium of at least 10 gallons with plenty of live rock and a sand bed. It is not aggressive towards other shrimp gobies and may even share a burrow with another species. Being territorial, it may occasionally quarrel with conspecifics if kept together, or if the tank is too small.
