      Scientific Name: Amblygobius rainfordi
      Max. size: 6.5 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; marine
      Distribution: Indo-West Pacific: Philippines south to Rowley Shoals and the southern Great Barrier Reef; Palau to the eastern Caroline and Marshall islands in Micronesia.
      Morphology: Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 11; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 11
      Biology: Inhabits sandy and muddy bottoms of turbid coastal reefs. Does not appear to use a burrow and seen in areas with coral growth
      Aquarium Care: Has a temperature range of 72 - 86°F (22 - 30°C) and natural diet consists of microalgae, including the filamentous variety, and meaty foodstuffs. Requires a varied diet, i.e., enriched brine shrimp, mysis, finely chopped fish or shrimp flesh, and some algae/small amounts of Spirulina flake, with one or two feedings per day. They should be housed in aquariums with a sandbed of at least two inches in depth and not 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. May jump out of the tank if harassed by tankmates.

      I have seen this fish in the wild and the photo is spot-on. Generally found in crevices and caves of the reef here off Queensland, Australia. Great fish, I want one!

      This as well is not a old glory goby it is a rainfordi goby. do your research. They are beautiful fish and it is a horrible thing to see them miss labeled so that people can't go and purchase them for their tanks.
