    ok heres another
    The Wheeler's Shrimp Goby, also known as Wheeler's Prawn, Gorgeous, or Watchman Wheeler's Goby, was first discovered in Indonesia in 1982 by Hoese and Randall. It has a white body with broad orange-red bands and tiny blue spots. The dorsal fin has red and blue dots.
    It should be kept in a 30 gallon or larger aquarium with a sand covered bottom to make burrows in. It prefers to have peaceful tank mates and plenty of hiding places. Small groups or pairs tend to do better in an aquarium, but need to be introduced to the tank simultaneously.
    Fairly hardy, and highly disease resistant, the Wheeler's Shrimp Goby has been known to spawn successfully in an aquarium.
    The diet should consist of a variety of fresh or frozen seafood, brine shrimp, and mysid shrimp. It needs to be fed twice per day.
