    Care Notes: Should be provided with sugar sized sand in which it can then build its self a burrow. One of the most spectacular shrimp gobies, the male will display a fanlike dorsal fin that bears a dramatic eyespot. This fish is shy and will spend most of its time in it burrow venturing out only on occasions and to feed. When introduced to a new aquarium this fish may not feed for several days. Once acclimatized and settled this is a hardy fish. Randall’s Gobies will become territorial and semi-aggressive around its burrow. Can be kept with other shrimp gobies in large enough tanks, conspecific may quarrel if kept in a small tank. Occasionally the large dorsal fin is a target for species that like to nip fins and remove parasites. Ideal tank mates include: Tang’s, Damselfish, Gramma’s, Angelfish and Wrasse.
