Wheeler’s Shrimp Goby is a small, peaceful fish that forms a fascinating symbiotic relationship with pistol shrimps. This species prefers to pair with Alpheus ochrostriatus, but sometimes pairs with A. bellulus or A. randalli in captivity. Provide a sand substrate for the goby and shrimp to burrow. Feed meaty foods like mysis and enriched brine shrimp. It is a hardy, easy to care for goby when it is housed with other peaceful fish.
