It is not a very aggressive fish, but may quarrel with its own species if housed in a small tank. To ensure the best environment for the Zebra Catalina Goby, an aquarium of at least 30 gallons is recommended. Additionally, providing plenty of hiding places can help reduce any potential quarrels amongst conspecifics. All in all, the Small Zebra Catalina Goby is an attractive and peaceful addition to any reef aquarium.

The Catalina Goby is a temperate species that has adapted to thrive in cooler water temperatures between 68 and 75 degrees. By staying within this range, the Catalina Goby is able to maximize its growth and reproduction potential. Moreover, the Catalina Goby is well-suited to temperate climates and is found in many regions throughout the world. This species is incredibly hardy and can withstand a wide array of environmental conditions. As such, it is a great choice for aquarium enthusiasts looking to add a bit of diversity to their tanks.

In the wild, the Zebra Catalina Goby eats small pieces of fish and plant material. In the aquarium, it will consume almost any prepared foods for carnivores, mysis shrimp, table shrimp, and vitamin-enriched brine shrimp. It should be fed three times per day.
