An intriguing as well as useful fish, the Mural Goby, Valenciennea mularis fills a niche that every tank needs. They will spend their days sifting sand through their gills, searching for small crustaceans. This will help aerate your sand bed, as well as minimize the buildup of excess food or algae. As juveniles, Mural Gobies stay in groups, but as adults, are typically found in pairs.
