What can i feed my pink spotted goby?

Got a 25 gallon tank, got a few little fish as seen in my pics, i assume the gobys eat off the sand since he never goes up for food and pecks at the sand from time to time. Is regular fish food enough? And i also have a royal gamma, my goby protects her and attacks crabs that come by there spot,is that normal? Thanks...noobie

They will eat just about anything however I believe the pink spotted is a watchmen. They wont stir the sand much.. try mysis its more likely to sink to the bottom so he can grab more.. just be sure to thaw it out in a small cup with some tank water then pour it through your net before putting it in the tank.

My 14 yr old pink spotted goby just died the other day. He decided to jump after all these yrs. He pretty well ate anything I put in the tank. I fed flake. Vitamin fortified brine and mysis. He did do some sifting in the tank but not all day sifting like my bullet goby did. Here is some recent pics of him in this link if you want to see what a mature one looks like.

Better yet I will just tell you what I did. I bought 3 large shrimp 6 clams 6 scallops and about 3 ounces of white fish and two sheets of sushi nori 1 glove of garlic all blended in a food processor .. works great!
