The Pinkbar Goby is also commonly referred to as the Shrimp Goby due to the close relationship that can form between it and various shrimp. Its body is silver marked with pink rings, and a yellowish colored tail with bright pink dots outlined in blue.

It feeds mostly on prey suspended in the water column, but will pick food off the substrate as well. The Pinkbar Goby diet should include mysid shrimp, brine shrimp, table shrimp, and frozen food preparations for carnivores.
