The Sharknose Neon Nano Goby is a brightly-coloured cleaner goby species sure to make a wonderful addition to your reef or nano-aquarium setup. Though similar in appearance to the Blue Neon Nano Goby (E.oceanops), the Sharknose Neon Nano Goby features bright yellow colouration (most prominent near the head) that blends beautifully into the electric blue stripe giving it a striking, two-tone effect. Like most fish, the coloration of the Sharknose Neon Nano Goby is influenced by lighting, diet, as well as environmental conditions.
The Sharknose Neon Nano Goby should be housed in a well-established 50 L or larger aquarium. Rarely will it become aggressive towards other fish. However, the Sharknose Neon Nano Goby is territorial and will demonstrate aggression towards its own kind unless they are a mated pair.
In the wild, a portion of a Cleaner Goby's natural diet consists of parasites picked off larger reef fish. The Sharknose Neon Nano Goby should be fed a varied diet consisting of foods specifically designed for carnivores. If kept in a reef aquarium, the Sharknose Neon Nano Goby should be fed once per day.
