Project Description

The dragon goby (or brownbarred goby, Amblygobius phalaena) is another one that can get big for a goby, sometimes reaching lengths of about 6 inches. This is another a sifter that also scoops up mouthfuls of sand and consumes the creatures living in it, and can thus help keep a sand bed clean, too.

Like the above, they should be kept one to a tank, although they’re more likely to get along okay with other sorts of fishes, including other types of sifters, again as long as there’s plenty of room for everyone. But, that’s not always the case, as they never get along with other dragon gobies best as I can tell, unless they’re kept as a mated pair
