Elacatinus evelynae - a saltwater fish for aquariums with a size of at least 60 litres
Due to its small body size of approx. 4 cm, the sharknose goby is perfect for small reef tanks. We recommend a tank with at least 60 litres water capacity. Make sure to keep the tank covered so the fish can't jump out.
Socializing of Elacatinus evelynae
Normally, socializing with other, bigger fish is not a problem. Occasionally, they'll even let the goby clean them. However, we don't recommend putting predatory shrimps into the same tank because they sometimes see the fish as food. Lysmata are usually no problem.
