      Scientific Name: Oxymetopon cyanoctenosum
      Common Names: Bluebarred Ribbon Goby, Razor Goby
      Max. size: 20.0 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; marine
      Distribution: Western Pacific: Indonesia and Philippines.
      Biology: Found on deep mud slopes. Lives in pairs in burrows
      Aquarium Care: This species is a recluse that is best housed in a tank with other docile species. If kept in a tank with more aggressive tankmates, it will hide continouously and starve. The Blue-barred Ribbon Goby requires ample swimming space and good hiding spots, such as a flat rock on live sand with a hollow underneath. It is easily startled by movements of human observers. Place tank in a low traffic area, move slowly when fish is out and do not turn off all lights suddenly. Will spend more time in the open if the tank has dim lighting. Keep tank covered, as this species is prone to jumping. Live brine may be needed to induce a feeding response. Try to get the fish to accept finely chopped or shaved froesh or frozen seafoods, frozen preparations for carnivores, and mysis. A refugium may be beneficial.
