Sold as Sleeper Goby or Marble Goby and found in Australia. Growing to an impressive 8 to 10 inches in length, this fish is a true predator. It uses its marbled brown on dark brown coloration to blend in with the substrate, and may even bury itself in the sand with just its eyes above the ground. When prey swims by, it quickly lunges and swallows its food, and this can include a fish half its size! The Sleeper Goby can be kept with other larger fish, just make sure it gets its share of the food. Good water quality is a must to avoid skin diseases and care should be taken if treating for parasite infestations.
