Neon Goby, Gobiosoma oceanops, are primarily either caught in Florida, or cultured in Florida.  These are wild, net caught specimens, which have been held in our system for at least two weeks and are eating frozen brine shrimp and small pellet foods.  Neon gobies are widely known for their parasite cleaning activities and once in your tank they will set up a cleaning station and attempt to clean ectoparasites off the larger fish. They are compatible with almost all other fish and invertebrates, and for some reason are not eaten by the majority of predator fish.  They will readily eat most commercial fish foods and are very easy to keep. Our Neon Goby are about 1″ to 1.5″ when we ship them and they can reach a maximum size of around 2″.

Neon Gobies can get territorial when kept in a small aquarium without enough hiding spaces. Only the pairs of Neon Gobies will get along in a small aquarium.

    Ordered a few of these. They are fun to watch and two paired up immediately. They aren’t cleaning much of anything but each other so far but watching them together is fun. They are beautiful little guys and healthy.

    excellent coloration and over all condition immediately upon arrival after cross country winter shipment. great product, fast, reliable service. Nice job sea life! A must addition to any reef tank, especially for ridding external parasites, what an amazing little fish.

    I am glad I waited for the mated pair! They are such a great little fish to have. And quite fun to watch. Mine have gone through about every hole in my live rock! The love to stick together. Havent seen them cleaning yet but it has only been 1 day.
