Neon Gold Goby


The head and lower body of the Neon Gold Goby, also called the Yellow Prow Goby, and Yellowstripe Cleaning Goby, are yellow. The dorsal body is black with a horizontal gold stripe.

It should be housed in a 10 gallon or larger aquarium. Rarely will it become aggressive towards other fish, but is territorial, and will fight with its own kind unless they are a mated pair. It is a hardy cleaner species that will service tank mates, cleaning them of parasites, which may help control some diseases, such as Ich.

It feeds on a variety of live and frozen brine shrimp, frozen mysis shrimp, table shrimp, and frozen food preparations for carnivores. If kept in a reef tank, the Neon Gold Goby should be fed once a day.

It is common for the Neon Gold Goby to spawn in an aquarium, laying its eggs in a crevice or empty shell.
