    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.

    Nice gobies.

    Collected in freshwater? Hmmm... said to be brackish according to Fishbase.

    Interesting... have to go back and see what the goby book says. Not much literature around the Internet.

    Re: Gobies

    Start a new thread if you will, this one was about a native goby caught in Singapore from 5 years ago.

    Re: Gobies

    I think gobies are cute. Something about those two eyes...
    Do they only take live food?

    Re: Gobies

    For the majority, yes, but frozen bloodworms will work for some of them. I used to feed my gobies with tubifex worms.

    Re: Gobies

    Some are able to adapt to frozen bloodworms and brine shrimp. Sometimes, a goby might just swallow a bit of flake or pellet that happens to sink past. But most gobies seem to live exclusively on a diet of live food. I feed my bumblebee gobies tubifex, moina and microworms.
    Small is beautiful.

    Live food: red bloodworms, brine shrimp
    Frozen food: red bloodworms, brine shrimp, krill, mosquito larvae, small shrimp ...
