      Scientific Name: Amblyeleotris guttata
      Max. size: 9.0 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; marine
      Distribution: Western Pacific: Philippines to Samoa, north to the Ryukyu Islands, south to Scott Reef and Great Barrier Reef; throughout Micronesia.
      Morphology: Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 12; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 12
      Biology: Found in patches or expanses of coarse carbonate sand on outer lagoon and seaward reefs
      Aquarium Care: Has a temperature range of 72 - 82°F (22 - 28°C) and natural diet consists mainly of benthic invertebrate. 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. Forms a symbiotic partnerships with nearly blind alpheid shrimps, yet does not need a shrimp partner to survive. This bottom dwelling animal should have a course substrate (2 - 4 mm) and some rubble to move around as desired. Non-aggressive to other species, however, one to a tank or a mated pair.
