The Gold Lazer Goby, scientifically known as Valenciennea sp., is a captivating and highly sought-after marine fish species that brings a touch of elegance and vibrancy to saltwater aquariums. With its striking gold coloration and unique burrowing behavior, the Gold Lazer Goby is a true gem that will enhance the beauty and intrigue of your marine habitat.


The Gold Lazer Goby showcases a shimmering gold body with subtle patterns and markings that add to its charm. Their elongated shape and graceful swimming behavior create a visually captivating and dynamic display in reef or sandbed aquariums. These gobies are known for their fascinating burrowing behavior, where they dig intricate tunnels in the substrate.


These fish have a symbiotic relationship with pistol shrimp, where they share a burrow for mutual protection. The shrimp maintain the burrow, and the gobies serve as lookouts, alerting the shrimp to potential threats. This natural behavior adds an interesting and cooperative dynamic to the aquarium.


Caring for the Gold Lazer Goby involves creating a stable environment with appropriate water parameters. They thrive in marine conditions with specific requirements, including stable temperature, pH, and salinity levels. A well-established aquarium with a sandy substrate will provide them with the ideal habitat. Their diet consists of small, meaty foods such as frozen brine shrimp and mysis shrimp.


Water Parameters:

  • Temperature: 72-78°F (22-26°C)
  • pH: 8.1-8.4
  • Salinity: 1.023-1.025
