We have had our golby for quite some time now. In the beginning he was very shy but now he is the boldest in the tank. He loves when people come to look at the tank and swims around. He is quite an agressive eater. Not in a bad way. I just mean he gives the clowns a run for their money in the chase for the food. I feed frozen mysis and brine.

He is constantly sifting sand. But, when the lights go off he swims SO fast into his cave. He is like a shot. My husband has told poeple to watch because it's so funny. Also, another habit of our golby is he fills the small doorway to his cave with sand EVERY night to lock himself in and unblocks it every morning. He is extremely entertaining to watch. The worste things about him is when he goes on a cleaning frenzy and makes our tank look so smokey it looks like they had a smokey poker game in there. We have not found him hard to keep.
