The Spotted Watchman Goby is also known as the Pink and
Blue Spotted, Singapore Shrimp, Leptocephalus Prawn, or Pinkspotted Shrimp
Goby. The head and body are yellow to tan with pink spots surrounded by smaller
blue spots.

 

It requires a 30 gallon or larger aquarium with plenty of
loose coral rubble, ample swimming room, and a sand bottom for burrowing. It
rarely becomes aggressive towards other fish, but it is territorial, and will
fight with its own kind unless they are a mated pair. It may try to jump out of
the aquarium or other small openings, therefore, a tight-fitting lid is
required.

 

The Spotted Watchman Goby diet should include a variety
of mysis shrimp, vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, table shrimp, and frozen food
preparations for carnivores. It should be fed at least twice per day.
