Scissortail Goby

Scissortail Goby

The peaceful Scissortail Goby is related to the Firefish. It is also a passive fish that requires many hiding places. With its white head which leads to a gradual gradient of glacier blue to its tail, this beautiful specimen requires ample swimming room to display is gorgeous coloration. Although a community fish, it should be kept in pairs or large groups. The Scissortail Goby is not only a jumper, requiring a tight fitting lid, but also requires a sand bottom to burrow into.
