Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Clown Goby, Yellow

It does mention that it is a carnivore even though I have never heard of this problem. It does tell you what they eat on the link.

Try the frozen cyclopeeze. Unless you have a monster of a clown goby, mysis is too big unless you chop it up really really fine.

I've heard of clown gobys picking at SPS coral from time to time, but have never heard about clams.

okay ill try to find some of this frozen cyclopeeze today. My clam has small white spots on it as a result of being bitten so I have had to remove the clown goby for the time being. Hopefully I find out what he will eat before its too late. Thanks!

Some people say soaking the food in garlic works.
