The Tiger Watchman Goby is also known as the Ward's
Sleeper, Ward's Tiger, or Tiger Sleeper Goby. It has a white body with brown
bands, and an eyespot on the first dorsal fin.

It should be housed in a 30 gallon or larger aquarium
with live sand as the substrate, and an attached populated refugium. It will
rarely become aggressive towards other fish, but it is territorial, and will
fight with its own kind unless they are a male-female pair.


Usually the Tiger Watchman Goby will feed off the bottom
sifting through the sand. The diet should consist of a variety of live and
frozen brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, live black worms, and prepared foods for carnivores.
It should be fed frequently.
