Trimma Goby


The Trimma Goby originating from the reefs of Cebu is a rare find in the industry. They are smaller gobies, only reaching a total length of 1 inch. Their body is opaque in color with many red irregularly shaped spots. Their eyes are very large for their size and are also spotted in red and gold. They are very active and peaceful gobies that will make a wonderful addition to the saltwater reef, nano or fish only aquarium.

It should be kept in a 10-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.

Stunning, sit and watches the aquarium, easy to pair if you get a small and bigger one at the same time. Do not interact/fight with other similar gobies.

Eats food out of the water coulomb, make sure the food is small enough.
