The Yellow Clown Goby, also known as Gobiodon okinawae, is a charming and colorful saltwater fish species that brings a vibrant touch to any reef or nano aquarium. They are highly sought after by marine enthusiasts for their striking appearance and interesting behaviors.


Yellow Clown Gobies are small in size, typically reaching a maximum length of 1.5 inches. They are ideally suited for smaller aquariums, such as nano reef tanks, with a minimum tank size of 10 gallons. These gobies are peaceful and can be kept with other compatible and non-aggressive tank mates.


Their vivid yellow coloration and large eyes add a delightful presence to the aquarium. They are known for their unique behavior of perching on corals or rock formations, which adds a touch of character to their overall appearance.


The Yellow Clown Goby is relatively easy to care for and requires a well-established saltwater aquarium with stable water parameters. They thrive in a reef-like environment with plenty of hiding places and live rock to explore. These gobies are generally considered to be good reef inhabitants and can peacefully coexist with corals and other invertebrates.


In terms of diet, Yellow Clown Gobies are carnivorous and will feed on small meaty foods such as copepods, amphipods, and finely chopped frozen or live foods. It's recommended to provide a varied diet to ensure they receive proper nutrition.
