Rainford Goby (Amblygobius rainfordi) Care
The Rainford Goby, Amblygobius rainfordi, is also known as the Old Glory Goby and the Court Jester Goby. These fish come from the Western Pacific Ocean. They have a bluish body that gets darker towards the tail. There are several narrow horizontal reddish-orange lines and a black eyespot on the upper dorsal and upper caudal peduncle.
These gobies are omnivores and require a diet rich in plant and meaty foods, such as marine algae, mysis and brine shrimp, and other types of fresh or frozen chopped seafood.
Rainford Gobies require an aquarium of 10 gallons or larger with plenty of live rock for hiding and a deep sand bed. They are known to jump and will leap out of tanks without a lid. They are peaceful fish and should not be kept with aggressive fish.
They are reef safe and will not bother corals, fish, but will eat tiny invertebrates.
