Loved mine for all of a day before I took him back to my LFS lol. He had an awesome personality and ate prepared food from day 1 but he also loved my acros so he had to leave

He is so cute! I would give up a few acros just for the personality. And a yellow that actually eats day 1 is quite a find!

Got a citron clown goby last week cause I like the way they perch in corals but mine only perches on the glass. Gotta say I am a little disappointed as I have some Great perches such as a giant green sinularia.

Give him time. In my QT tank, mine only perched on the glass for a month. Once in my display tank, he did start perching on a coral skeleton I have. He also likes to hid under the edge of one my corals, but so far hasn't perched on top of a live coral. He's awfully cute in the coral skeleton though.

I know this is a bit of an older thread, but I decided to do a search for these guys. We bought a Citron Goby today from a reef shop in Atlanta. It’s going in an established tank. I’m hopeful it’ll readily eat mysis or frozen food at least.

Mine started eating on day 2. Initially, he preferred pellets because they’d sink down to him. Now he eats anything and everything

I'm here because mine green guy was great for a couple months, but today decided to tear up some acans. lil rascal has to go! So small though. No clue how I'll get him out. :/
They will nest on branching sps. They will clear off a section to lay eggs. They won't eat sps. So it you think sps are being eaten I would check other live stock or possible hitchhiker.

I witnessed him multiple times taking bites out of my acans. So he's gone. Netted him up pretty easily actually. Blinded by his new tasty treat and didnt see the giant net coming at him i guess.
