Buan's Goby is peaceful, reef safe, and gets along great with other peaceful reef fish. Avoid keeping it with aggressive species or animals that are large enough to eat small fish. Like other gobies, these can easily jump out of an aquarium when chased or frightened, so a tight-fitting lid is required. They do exhibit sand-sifting behaviours but don't require sand for survival.
This type of goby doesn't usually do well in captivity when wild-caught, but our captive-bred gobies feed on just about any fish foods offered.
These gobies do well singly in a smaller tank of 10+ gallons. Pairs may do well in large aquariums when added at the same time, but note that this species can be aggressive toward conspecifics and is not sexually dimorphic.
