The Wide-barred Shrimp Goby is an excellent addition to any aquarium. They are peaceful, hardy, and entertaining fish. Their unique behavior and coloration will bring a sense of life to any tank. They should be kept in a 10-gallon or larger aquarium with a sand covered bottom to make burrows in, as well as plenty of hiding places. Additionally, it is best to introduce them in small groups or pairs, so they should be added to the aquarium simultaneously. With the right environment and tank mates, they can be very rewarding to keep.

The Wide-barred Shrimp Goby is a hardy species that requires a regular diet of fresh or frozen chopped seafood, as well as brine and mysis shrimp. It is important to feed them at least once a day in order to maintain their health and vitality. Supplementing their diet with flake food or live food is also beneficial to their overall wellbeing. Additionally, providing them with a variety of ingredients can make mealtime more exciting and provide them with a wider range of nutrients.

The approximate purchase size for small, medium, and large sizes is 1″, 2″, and 3″, respectively.
