Natural History: The Twinspot Goby is found on sand and silt reef bottoms in lagoons and bays. It is often found in monogamous pairs. It feeds by sifting mouthfuls of sand.
Husbandry: The Twinspot Goby feeds on small benthic crustaceans it finds in the sand, so live rock and a refugium will help to produce the foods that it prefers. They are reported to have a large appetite for their size. It should be housed only with peaceful species and will likely only be aggressive with other small gobies.
