This species of fish is an excellent choice for a saltwater aquarium. It is hardy, peaceful, and active, which makes it a great addition to most home aquariums. An ideal setup for this species should include plenty of hiding places, such as rocks and corals, to allow the fish to feel secure. It requires a 30 gallon or larger aquarium with plenty of loose coral rubble, ample swimming room, and a sand bottom for burrowing. Furthermore, it is important to make sure the lid is properly secured to prevent the fish from jumping out. This species is relatively easy to care for, requiring only regular water changes and a balanced diet to maintain health.

The Yellow Watchman Goby diet should include a variety of mysis shrimp, brine shrimp, table shrimp, and frozen preparations for carnivores. It is important to provide a balanced diet to ensure the health of your fish, so feeding them twice per day is recommended. Variety is key in providing your Yellow Watchman Goby with all of the necessary nutrients and energy to thrive. Additionally, a protein-rich diet will help them stay active and healthy. All of these elements combined will ensure that your Yellow Watchman Goby will be in optimal condition.
