You could soak his food in garlic to entice him to eat. How long has your tank been up? I think they eat microorganizms in the sand by sifting it through their gills. I think they need a pretty established tank. GL!!!!!

Yep, if you have a well established sandbed in a larger tank, they will be fine. However, keep an eye on him, if you don't have a well enough established sandbed, then he will begin to show evidence of starvation (he'll get skinnier and skinnier). Some will feed on prepared foods, others will not.

What is considered larger tank? and if u already have a goby, how long till he is "safe". Will the sand bed still mature once u have one?
