The War Paint Clown Goby will often create its own burrow in the sand – sometimes these burrows are shared in a symbiotic relationship with the Pistol Shrimp. They will lay their eggs on the underside of the coral’s branch, which will cause tissue recession in that area of the coral. However, under good conditions, the coral will regenerate the lost tissue.
Feed a varied diet consisting of small bits of meaty foods. These foods include krill, raw table shrimp, squid, clam and mussel.
