This fish is a great choice for a saltwater aquarium. It should be housed in a 30 gallon or larger aquarium with live sand as the substrate and an attached populated refugium. It is important to remember that while it is not typically aggressive towards other fish, it can be territorial and can fight with its own kind unless they are a male-female pair. For this reason, it is often best to keep a single specimen, or a mated pair. This fish is a great addition to any saltwater aquarium and its unique behavior will provide hours of enjoyment.

This Tiger Watchman Goby should be fed two to three times a day, as they are very active eaters. To provide a balanced diet, it is important to offer a variety of live and frozen foods such as brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, and live black worms. Prepared foods for carnivores are also an excellent supplement. With a proper diet, the Tiger Watchman Goby will be able to sift through sand and enjoy its active lifestyle. Furthermore, the Tiger Watchman Goby is an ideal fish for saltwater aquariums due to its peaceful nature and attractive colors.
