Gobies - fresh/brackish

Postby Jkazz » Fri Jul 25, 2008 9:57 am

Are there any commonly imported gobies other than bumblebees and knights that are about the same size?

I'd say that the answer is unfortunately "no", because most other small freshwater/brackish gobies are an occasional lucky find, none are really commonly imported other than the ones you mentioned - the various species that pass through the trade as "bumblebee gobies" and the knight gobies. There is also the freshwater peacock goby that's fairly common.

Although the goby family is huge, most of them are true marine fish, and the freshwater/brackish ones don't turn up often, and information and correct ID's are often lacking.
