  • Description

    Please note that the product information displayed is provided by manufacturers, suppliers and other third parties and is not independently verified by Petco.

    Gobies are an excellent addition to reef aquariums as they have a small adult size and a lot of personality. The Engineer Goby is a very unique fish. Their body markings will change throughout their life. As they grow their horizontal stripes will become vertical. They move similarly to an eel by wiggling their whole body. Provide an environment with peaceful tank mates, hiding places and a few inches of sandy substrate so they can burrow. They tend to do better in pairs or groups, but be sure to add them simultaneously. Provide a mixed meaty diet and feed twice a day. Be aware the Engineer Goby might snack on any ornamental shrimps or small fish if hungry enough, which is why it is recommended to feed more than once daily.

    • - Add to an aquarium with ample rockwork for grazing/hiding and a deep sand bed
    • - For continued health, provide a varied diet of marine meaty foods and should be fed twice daily
    • - Reef safe
    • - Do best housed in a group, but need to be added simultaneously
    • - Aquarium needs a tight fitted lid
    • - Needs peaceful tankmates
    • - Approximate selling size: Small 1-2.25"; Medium 2.25-3.5"

  • ACCLIMATION: Avoid exposing new aquatic life to bright lights after opening the box. Turn off aquarium lights prior to floating aquatic life. Allow the sealed bag with your new fish to float in your aquarium for at least 15 minutes (but no longer than one hour) to ensure the water in the bag matches the temperature in your aquarium. A bacteria booster addition can assist with the addition of new aquatic life. Petco offers free water testing in store to determine if your water is safe for the addition of new aquatic life. DIET: A well-balanced diet consists of a variety of flakes, pellets, freeze-dried and frozen foods, depending on the species. FEEDING: Feed sparingly and no more than fish can eat in 1-2 minutes. Overfeeding can quickly foul the water, especially in smaller aquariums.
