Spotted Mandarin Goby

A slow but colorful fish, often found hiding in the live rock or hovering between caves. Primarily a bottom-dweller, it will "hunt" across the substrate and rock for live food to graze on. It is slower and more methodical than most reef fish, and cannot compete with more active or aggressive tank mates for food.
