Your live fish may not match the image shown due to natural variations in each species. Each companion animal is different in shape, color, and personality.
Also known as a Blue Band Goby, Pennant Glider, Akahachihaze (Japan), Mano'o-sina (Samoa).
This goby is a wonderful community fish that, unfortunately, can be territorial. As with many Gobies, this species is a bottom dweller, requiring sand to create a burrow and plenty of open swimming space. Although the Sleeper Goldenhead Goby is a bottom dweller that can eat its food off of the sandy bottom, it prefers to pick its food as it falls through the water column. This species is known as a jumper when startled, so a tight fitting lid is highly recommended.
