Natural History: The Yellow Clown Goby is associated with coral reefs rich in branching corals and is commensalistic with Acropora species. It is found in groups of 5 to 15 individuals, resting among or on the branches of the Acropora.
Husbandry: This species is considered an excellent nano-system fish. Live rock and some live or dead branching corals will help give it refuge. The live rock will also help to provide some of the small crustaceans upon which this fish feeds. It may be aggressive with other Clown Gobies but not toward other species.
