The Blue Cheek Sleeper Goby's head is yellow-gold with a sapphire-blue stripe below the eyes, and the rest of the body is off-white. To be successfully cared for, it should be housed in an aquarium with sand or fine gravel as the substrate. A well-sealed aquarium lid should be provided.

They rarely will become aggressive towards other fish, but is territorial, and will fight with its own kind unless they are a mated pair. They feeds from the bottom as it sifts through the sand eating mouthfuls of substrate and the food that lives within the sand, keeping the substrate well oxygenated. The Blue Cheek Sleeper Goby feeds on a variety of live and frozen brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, and prepared foods for carnivores, and should be fed frequently.
