It is the same shrimp. You just buy it raw at the seafood counter. You'll need to chop it up finely for the goby to take it. You can target feed your goby with a turkey baster or just add this to the tank as all your fish would enjoy it. I would first soak it in zoe or another vitamin suppliment first. HTH

If it's small enough, you could try. I've never fed my gobies silverside. They eat just about anything they can get into thier mouths.

IF you are having trouble getting him to eat, soak in garlic too and he will love it, so will the other fish...plus it's good for their immune systems...

I havent gotten him yet I was just reading up on them because I am interested in getting one and just wanted to get some info. first.
Thanx for the info.
I ask alot of questions at the pet stores but I never feel like I am getting the correct answers so I like to do my own research. I like to research first and buy later. Oh I do have another question though I also read that they are territorial and should only be kept with a mate. How can you tell the sex of them?
TIA
