Bumblebee Goby

Bumblebee Goby

By Clint Norwood
Species/genus:   Brachygobius xanthozona

Bumble Bee Goby © Clint Norwood
Origin:   Java, Borneo, Sumatra
Temp:  72-88°F (22-30°C)
pH:   6.5 - 8.2   dH:  Medium Hard
Temperament:   Bumble Bees have a well deserved reputation as being a fin nipper, and they will actively hunt, kill and eat any fish small enough to swallow.
Adult Size:   a little over 1 inch (3cm), but a chubby little fellow
Minimum Tank Size:   1 gallon
Feeding:   Prefers live foods such as brine shrimp and grindal worms, but will eat frozen foods and even flakes in a pinch
Breeding:  Difficult to spawn. Strange in that they will spawn in water that is hard and acid. Spawn in caves, seashells or pvc pipe.
Comments:   Very cute fish, gets it's name from it's marked resemblance to a bumble bee. Likes slightly brackish water, up to a tablespoon of salt per gallon. They are best kept in a species tank where they are somewhat peaceful among their own and much more active swimmers.
