The Torpedo Goby, also known as the Scissortail Dartfish,
has a white head and blue body with large dorsal and anal fins.

It should be housed in a 30 gallon or larger aquarium
with plenty of loose coral rubble, and a tight-fitting lid to prevent it from
jumping out of the tank. It requires ample swimming room and a sand bottom for
burrowing. It will rarely become aggressive towards other fish, but is
territorial, and will fight with its own kind unless they are a mated pair.

 

The Torpedo Goby diet should include chopped or shaved
seafood, brine shrimp, and mysis shrimp.
