Feeding:
Will eat frozen Mysis and Brineshrimp, will usually eat flake or pellets if they sink to the bottom.

Yes, may dig, could be a threat to very small Shrimps.

Compatibility:
Generally peaceful with other similar sized fish, if kept with active species, ensure enough food reaches the bottom as they can easily starve. Can be aggressive to other Gobies of the same species, unless a purchased as a pair, or kept in a large aquarium.

Other information.
Can pair up with some species of Pistol shrimp (Alpheus randalli) to form a symbiotic relationship. The shrimp digs a hole and goby is a lookout. The goby warns the shrimp of approaching danger, and if necessary they both retreat into the hole. Like many gobies this species in known to jump out of open top aquariums.
Very similar to Stonogobiops xanthorhinica, which does not have the elongated dorsal ray.
