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
