    Additional Information & Description

    The Yasha White Ray Shrimp Goby has the ability to form symbiotic partnerships with most species of pistol shrimp. It provides a watchful eye while the shrimp digs a burrow for them to share.

    Very passive, this species works well in small groups or as an individual specimen. The Yasha White Ray Shrimp Goby is very hardy and adapts well to reef aquariums, as long as they are maintained with passive tankmates. Ideally this goby should be the first bottom dwelling goby added to the established aquarium, so the fish may stake out its territory before other more pugnacious gobies are added. It prefers a bed of fine sand and loose coral rubble to move around and dig its burrow.

    Feed the Yasha White Ray Shrimp Goby a diet consisting of a variety of fresh or frozen mysis shrimp, vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, and table shrimp and it should be fed at least twice per day. (liveaquaria)

    This is one of the most watched fish in my tank. It lives with 2 candy pistol shrimps and has a personality of its own. This picture was taken using tank lighting and a fill flash to light up the side of the fish.
