The common name yellow rose goby is probably the result of a misprint, as yellow NOSE goby makes a lot more sense given the distinctive bright yellow coloration that extends from the top of the head to the chin. This small fish originates from the Indo-West Pacific from the Seychelles and the Philippines through Bali and Indonesia and is the hardiest of the hi-fin gobies. It appreciates a peaceful community tank, and they make fantastic reef inhabitants. Because they will dig a burrow, make sure the tank has a sandbed. Plan to keep only one per tank unless the tank is very large or you can obtain a mated pair. Successful spawnings are quite possible in the aquarium. Interestingly enough, there are reports of the yellow rose goby sharing its burrow with other species of shrimp gobies.
