Sleeper Gold Head Goby (Valenciennea strigata)

Sleeper Gold Head Goby has its head is yellow-gold with a sapphire-blue stripe below the eyes, and the rest of the body is off-white. To be successfully cared for, it should be housed in a 30 gallon or larger aquarium with live sand as the substrate, and an attached populated refugium. A well-sealed canopy should be provided. It rarely will become aggressive towards other fish, but is territorial, and will fight with its own kind unless they are a mated pair.

It feeds off the bottom as it sifts through the sand eating mouthfuls of substrate and the food that lives within the sand, keeping the substrate well oxygenated. The Sleeper Gold Head Goby feeds on a variety of live and frozen brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, live black worms, and prepared foods for carnivores, and should be fed frequently.
