- Pteroculiops guttatus
- A generally peaceful Goby that should not be housed with aggressive fish. It may pose a threat to small ornamental shrimp and does not need a alpheid shrimp in captivity.
- Feed small meaty foods such as mysis shrimp, vitamin-enriched brine shrimp and chopped cocktail shrimp.
- Feed two to three times a day.
- Should have a secure tank lid as this fish is a known escape artist. Substrate should be a mix of course sand and coral rubble for them to rummage through.
- A bottom dwelling generally peaceful Goby that will sift through the sand and coral rubble looking for food. This Goby forms a symbiotic relationship with the nearly blind alpheid shrimp where the Goby keeps watch for predators while the shrimp digs a burrow for them to share.
- Typical Goby in shape with a blunt head and large eyes set on the top of the head. The body is white-cream in base colour with many orange spots edged in brown covering the body and into the base of the fins.
