Candy Cane Goby

Candy Cane Goby

By: fishkeeper
 
Common Name: Candy Cane Goby
Latin Name: Awaeous strigatus
Origin: South America
Temperature: 72-80°F (22-27°C)
Ease Of Keeping: average
Aggressivness: peaceful, but it may nip long finned fish once it gets used to its enviroment
Lighting: Doesn't like bright lighting
Adult Size: 3.5 inches (8.25cm)
Minimum Tank Size: 15 gallons (60 liters)
Feeding: Only accepts live foods. Black worms, brine shrimp, maybe grindal worms.
 
Comments: This fish likes a sandy substrate so it can burrow into it. I haven't personally owned one, but I have taken care of it for 4 weeks. I think it really has a funky personality of its own. They are also known as red striped gobies or candy striped gobies. Be sure to add salt to the water as it will only thrive in a slightly brackish enviroment. Make sure it gets plenty to eat
