A Fish that Earns its Keep featured

Comments Hector's Gobies are extremely hardy and easy to take care of. They are a peaceful fish that can be kept in most tanks. You only need a small tank to suit this fish as well. They have a unique coloration being mostly black with white and yellow stripes. They also have cool eye spots along their dorsal fin and some red spots mixed in. These fish really earn their keep as they are great sand sifters and will eat/ pick at the nuissance hair algae! I have never seen any signs of aggression with my goby. He usually keeps to himself in search of food and doesn't bother anyone. Mine has grown from about one inch to an inch and a half within a few short weeks. Their maximum growth is around 3 inches. They are typically hardy eaters accepting a range of frozen foods to flakes and pellets. However they will typically grab their own food from hair algae and sand sifting.
