Gold Neon Eviota Goby


The Gold Neon Eviota Goby originates from the reefs of Cebu and is a rare find in the industry. They are smaller gobies only reaching a total length of 1 inch. Their bodies are elongated and opaque in color with red vertical bands. Their large eyes stand out with their gold rims, and the nose is marked in white. These are very active and peaceful gobies that will make a wonderful addition to the saltwater reef or fish-only aquarium.

Gold Neon Eviota Gobies should be kept in a 30 gallon or larger aquarium with plenty of live rock for hiding and as a supplemental food source. Small groups or pairs tend to do better in an aquarium, but need to be introduced to the tank simultaneously. Do not house these gobies with larger, aggressive fish or invertebrates.

The diet should consist of a variety of fresh or frozen seafood, brine shrimp, and mysis shrimp. It needs to be fed twice per day.
