While they may be shy at first, Yellowheaded Sleeper Gobies quickly become a lively addition to your aquarium, constantly scurrying and exploring. They’re also relatively low-maintenance, making them an ideal choice for all skill levels. Do note these fish tend to be Jumppers so a covered aquarium is highly recommended.
