Green Banded Goby (Tigrigobius multifasciatus)


Max Size: 2 inches
Diet: Carnivore
Temperament: Peaceful
Reef Compatible: Yes
Minimum Tank Size: 10 gallons

The Greenbanded Goby, previously known as Gobiosoma multifasciatum but now reclassified as Tigrigobius multifasciatus, is a stunning addition to smaller reef or fish-only aquariums. This peaceful and small species exhibits a vivid green color with slender iridescent green bands vertically running down its body. Its unique appearance is further accentuated by a white head with a brownish-red band across each eye.

For optimal care, the Greenbanded Goby should be housed in a 10-gallon or larger aquarium with ample rockwork and decor. They tend to hover around these structures and can thrive when kept in small groups of three or more individuals.

In a suitable environment, it is common for the Greenbanded Goby to spawn, laying its eggs in crevices or empty shells.

To meet their dietary needs, these gobies should be offered a varied diet consisting of live and frozen brine shrimp, frozen mysis shrimp, table shrimp, and frozen food preparations suitable for carnivores.
