 Gobiidae  -  This  is  large  family  of  fishes..mostly  ignored  by  aquarists....The  variety  available  is  quite  mindblowing...some  exotic  colors....  some  very  drab,  some  very  tiny...  some  very  large,  Algae  eating  to  ambush  predators..the  list  goes  on!
 
 I  have  been  fascinated  by  Gobies  for  some  time  now  and  thought  it  would  be  a  good  idea  to  put  up  some  info,  Pics  and  experience  that  we  have  had  while  keeping  these  wonderful  fishes.

 Nice  thread....I  dont  have  much  knowledge  about  goby  keeping  but  would  like  to  share  what  I  know.
 
 The  only  goby  I  had  is  Glossogobius  giuris  commonly  called  the  tank  goby.  
 
 Setup  preference:  It  prefered  sandy  portion  of  the  tank  eventhough  there  were  rocks  and  drift  wood  in  the  tank
 
 Water:  I  had  it  in  freshwater,  but  a  few  people  say  it  does  well  with  adding  a  little  salt.
 
 Temperament:  Peaceful  to  fish  larger  than  its  mouth,  did  not  see  it  fin  nipping  or  chasing  fish  around
 
 Feeding:  Its  a  predatory  fish,  it  swallowed  a  few  tankmates  smaller  than  itself.  Did  not  accept  dry  food  but  took  frozen  bloodworms.  
 
 Max  size:  Mine  was  around  3  inches  but  I  have  collected  specimens  more  than  a  foot  long  in  the  wild.

 Excellent  Thread!!!!
 
 
 
 
 
 Scientific  Name  :  Omobranchus  zebra
 
 Common  Name  :  Zebra  Blenny
 
 Tank  Setup  :  Can  be  easily  acclimatized  to  fresh  water.  Lotsa  hiding  places  are  a  must  as  these  are  extremely  territorial  and  nasty  to  each  other.
 
 Feeding  :  Easy  to  feed.  Will  eat  anything.  Sinking  food  works  best  but  will  come  to  the  surface  to  eat  too.
 
 Maximum  Size  :  Around  2"
 
 Distribution  :  India,Malaysia,Indonesia

 The  tank  goby  -  G.  Giuris
 
 Extremely  hardy  and  eats  anything  that  fits  in  it's  mouth  -  including  tankmates.
 
 The  blennies  -  fun  fish  to  keep  as  long  as  you've  chosen  the  tankmates  properly.  Provide  lots  of  hiding  spaces  and  rocks  to  form  "territories"
 
 O.  zebra
 
 
 And  the  "horned"  cousin  -  O.  smithii
 
 
 Cheers,

 Lovely  pics.  
 
 Omobranchus  smithi  I  found  is  more  docile  and  shy  than   O.zebra.  Otherwise,  their  feeding  habits,water  condition  etc  are  the  same.

 Anyone  kept  Gobiopsis  macrostoma???  Got  'em  a  coupla  years  ago  and  managed  to  keep  'em  alive  only  for  a  few  weeks.  The  most  beautiful  Goby  IMO.  Finicky  buggers  though.
