    Brachygobius doriae in backwater?

    On seriously fish, it says populations of Brachygobius doriae can be found in blackwater swamps with negligible hardness so I'm wondering if store brought ones can be adjusted to blackwater conditions? Has anyone kept them in blackwater? If you have what was the hardness and the pH? Also if they...

    I have 3 kinds of stiphodon goby in my tank you can see the fry look like all the stiphodon kinds, From everything I have read it's never happened because the fry drift to a marine water and grow up there until they become juveniles. The 3 kinds of Stiphodon I have are neon blue, rainbow and...

    Is there any type of freshwater goby that doesn’t need a heavy flow?

    I honestly had no idea which forum to post this under, sorry. I just upgraded my tank to a 20g long and I REALLY wanted a pair of gobies, but the more research I do, the less it’s looking good for me. I will have a betta in the tank which is my biggest problem because most gobies like fast...

    Gobies in my tank?

    hi everyone :) I’ve wanted a Goby for ages but I thought they were only for marine tanks, then I saw something about freshwater Gobies? Does anyone know if that’s actually a thing? I don’t really know anything about them other than they’re super fun to watch! Are they easy to look after...

    How To Travel With A Fish?

    I'll soon be heading home from college, which is about a 16 hour drive. My LFS said that I could bag my violet goby as long as I made sure that there was enough air in the bag for him during the trip. I'm not sure I want to do that, because I think it will stress him out a lot.    If he's going...

    Violet Goby (Dragon Fish) Gasping? Please Help

    Hi everyone,   First off, I am a newbie fish owner. I do not have a ton of experience with fish. That being said, I recently purchased a violet goby from Walmart. He is about 4 inches long.

    My Neon Blue Goby Won't Eat!

    I bought a neon blue goby from Jack's Aquarium about a month ago. Hearing these guys are herbivores I bought some green seaweed for him(did not like that the first ingredient in any algae wafers was fish meal...). I have yet to ever see him eat and it looks like he is getting thinner. Should I...
