      Scientific Name: Amblyeleotris fontanesii
      Max. size: 15.2 cm SL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; marine; depth range - 28 m
      Distribution: Western Pacific: Sumatra to the Moluccas, north to the Philippines; Palau in Micronesia. Reported from Papua New Guine and south of Taiwan.
      Morphology: Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 15; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 16-17. Coloration is greenish red dorsally and pearly ventrally with 3 broad dusky bands, small pearly spots on the upper portion of the head and reddish yellow fins.
      Biology: Inhabits silty inshore bottoms.
      Aquarium Care: Has a temperature range of 72 - 82°F (22 - 28°C) and their natural diet consists mainly of small benthic invertebrate and plankton. Requires a meaty diet, i.e., enriched brine shrimp, mysis, finely chopped fish or shrimp flesh, with one or two feedings per day. They should not be housed with aggressive fishes such as groupers, dottybacks, triggerfishes or angelfishes. Small sinking enriched shrimp meal pellets are an excellent way of keeping them well fed. This bottom dwelling animal should have a course substrate (2 - 4 mm) and some rubble to move around as desired.

      See the shrimp- next to it that is called a pistol shrimp that is how you can be sure it is an athena watchmen goby. They survive best if paired with the pistol shrimp when purchased.
