The Orange Spotted Shrimp Goby, also known as the Spotted Prawn Goby or Orange Spotted Goby, was first discovered in the Western Pacific in 1938 by Flower. Its body is white with orange spots outlined in brown. It has the ability to form symbiotic partnerships with nearly blind alpheid shrimp. It provides a watchful eye while the shrimp digs a burrow for them to share.

The Orange Spotted Shrimp Goby is one of the most attractive shrimp-goby species, and is also relatively common in the marine fish trade. The body is covered with orange spots, the pelvic fins are black and the belly is also dark.

The Orange Spotted Shrimp Goby fishes are well suited for aquarium life. They are not aggressive, except possibly towards conspecifics or towards other bottom-dwelling fishes, except for those that try to enter their preferred hiding place. The Orange Spotted Shrimp Goby require suitable hiding places and they may jump out of an open aquarium when startled. So always a covered aquarium is preferred. If the aquarium is not pre-covered, use lid to cover it otherwise they will kump out of the tank. Like all other shrimp fishes, the Orange Spotted Shrimp Goby also shares a burrow with one or more snapping shrimp (Alpheus species).

The small sinking enriched shrimp meal pellets are an excellent way of keeping the Orange Spotted Shrimp Goby well fed. They forms a symbiotic partnerships with nearly blind alpheid shrimps, yet does not need a shrimp partner to survive. This bottom dwelling animal should have a course substrate and some rubble to move around as desired. It is possible for the Orange Spotted Shrimp Goby to spawn successfully while in the aquarium.

The aquarium should have a tight-fitting lid to prevent it from jumping out. The Orange Spotted Shrimp Goby adapts well to reef aquariums, although it does pose a possible threat to small, delicate ornamental shrimp. It prefers a bed of fine sand and loose coral rubble to sift through.

Tank Conditions: The Orange Spotted Shrimp Goby requires a temperature range of 72 - 82F (22 - 28C) and natural diet consisting mainly of benthic invertebrate. They requires a meaty diet i.e. enriched brine shrimp, mysis, finely chopped fish or shrimp flesh, with one or two feedings per day.
