The Yellow Priolepis Goby, also known as the Yellow-Green Goby, or Golden Green Goby has a body with alternating white and yellow to green vertical stripes.

A 10 gallon or larger aquarium with plenty of hiding places is suitable for this cryptic fish. It is a great addition to the reef aquarium and will spend most of its time resting and swimming within the rock work. It is non-aggressive towards other fish and will not bother invertebrates in the tank.

The Yellow Priolepis Goby is easy to feed and its diet consists of most marine foods. Prepared foods such as vitamin enriched mysis shrimp and brine shrimp should be fed on a regular basis.
