Orange Spotted Sleeper Goby Diet & Nutrition: Carnivorous - the Orange Spotted Sleep Goby eats by sifting sand through it's mouth and gills. They sift the sand to gather small invertebrates and uneaten bits of food to eat. In a well-established reef this fish will not likely need food, but small sinking pellets are a good suppliment.

Orange Spotted Sleeper Goby Description: The orange spotted sleeper goby is an excellent reef fish. It will not harm corals or other invertebrates, but it can cause some problems with dropping sand on corals as it sifts. If you have LPS corals such as moon stones that will have a problem with sand resting on them, then make sure to place them higher in the tank.
