Male gobies are a bit territorial and they will immediately take their area in a tank. They may show a little aggressiveness regarding their territory, but it is nothing serious.
Feeding ocelot goby is the hardest part of keeping them, as it is a bit tricky to feed them. Usually they like to eat whatever that is floating around in the water.

The best option is brine shrimp and blood worms as they only eat food when it is moving, otherwise they may ignore it.
