Blue Spot Shrimp Goby also known as the Blue Spot Goby, Black Finned Shrimp Goby, Peacock Shrimp Goby or Bluespotted Watchman Goby are found around Indonesia.
Livestock arrives in and out of stock very regularly, depending upon availability of the item from the source. The more rare and expensive items are often difficult to hold in stock, and can take time to source, so we generally require a deposit to locate and purchase the extremely rare items
The Blue Spot Shrimp Goby have two colour phases. The first has an orange head with blue spots, the body is orange with red bands, and the dorsal fin has black spots. The second phase is olive drab with blue spots.
It should be housed in a 30 gallon or larger aquarium with plenty of loose coral rubble. It requires ample swimming room and a sand bottom for burrowing. Rarely will it become aggressive towards other fish, but it is territorial, and will fight with its own kind unless they are a mated pair. It may also be aggressive towards smaller ornamental shrimp. The aquarium requires a tight-fitting cover to prevent it from jumping out.
The Blue Spot Shrimp Goby feeds mostly on prey suspended in the water column but will pick food off the substrate. The diet should include mysis shrimp, brine shrimp, and table shrimp. It should be fed at least three times per day.
