TOP RECOMMENDATIONS FOR TANK-RAISED SALTWATER FISH
Neon Goby (Elacatinus oceanops) – This unique species of captive-bred goby is named for its neon coloration – these fish have a dark black background color with bright blue stripes. The neon goby grows up to 2 inches long and it is generally a peaceful species that does well in saltwater community tanks. This species can be a little aggressive toward its own species, though this can be avoided by keeping it in groups with six or more of its own species. The neon goby feeds mainly on parasites which makes it a very useful addition to the saltwater tank and it is a prolific breeder. These fish prefer a tank temperature range between 72 and 78 degrees Fahrenheit with a pH between 8 and 8.4 and a water hardness between 8 and 12 dKH.
