Blackfin Coral Goby

(Paragobiodon lacunicolus)

Paragobiodon Gobies should be added to well established aquariums with plenty of room to swim. Plenty of rock work with caves, cracks, crevices and a deep sand bed should be provided for hiding and sleeping. Although not required Paragobiodon Gobies are happiest when added to aquariums with Pocillopora and Seriatopora Corals. A diet rich in meaty based foods should be provided. Gobies are shy peaceful fish and should be housed with similarly sized peaceful fish. Gobies may jump provide an aquarium with a tight fitting lid.

Blackfin Coral Goby are also sometimes known simply as the Panda Coral Goby. Rarely seen in the aquarium trade. Blackfin Coral Gobies are quite lovely with a tan colored body highlighted with black dorsal, anal, pectoral and tail fins. Blackfin Coral Gobies can grow to almost 2".
