Rainsford Goby


New member
I just got a Rainsford Goby that I think is not eating. I feed frozen mysis and pellets. Any suggestions on how to get him to eat?

If he dies in my tank will it be a problem? I have crabs, a cleaner shrimp and 3 peppermint shrimp. Will they just eat him?

I have no experience with this kind of fish, but when any fish dies you want to pull them out of your tank to avoid a amnonia/nitrite/nitrate spike.

Take him back to the store if you can't verify that he's eating. A Rainford eats by sifting sand, and the sand needs to be very fine to pass his gills, and the tank needs to be old enough to have life in the sand.
