Australian Desert Gobies

By Clint Norwood


Male Australian Desert Goby
 
Latin Name - Chlamydogobius eremius
 
Origin - Australia
 
Size - Up to 2.5 inches [6.25cm]
 
Water Parameters - Hard Alkaline, with the addition of a teaspoon or 2 of salt per gallon of water. Desert Gobies can survive temperatures of between 40 to 100F [5 to 40C] but seem to do best in the high 70's
 
Spawning - Cave Spawner, males will guard the 100 to 200 eggs which will hatch in 7 to 12 days.
 
Fry Care - Fry need to separated from the adults, they can be started on baby brine shrimp and/or microworms.
 
Bascic Care - ADG prefer a sandy bottom with plenty of rocks and caves. They will eat just about anything but have an unnatural love for shrimp pellets. Very poor swimmers these gobies get around by hops and scoots and enjoy plenty of rock or PVC pipe caves to explore and play on. They can get by pretty well in as little as 5 gallons per pair. Desert Gobies typically live for only 1 year at best.
