Bzzzzz :D

So, I saw that my LPS has bumblebee gobies, and they are ADORABLE!

So, I was wondering if BF could supply me with some knowledge about them?

And if you have pics, please share! :D

I might get some when I get a much bigger tank in the future c:

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops

They ARE adorable! I don't know all that much about them myself, but I think they're actually pretty territorial despite their small size and are brackish water fish.

what exactly is brackish water? I know that it's not the same as the water bettas live in, and that brackish is prefered for fish like goldfish, but I'm curious c:

No. Brackish is not preferred for goldfish. Goldfish are freshwater fish.

Brackish water has a salinity content between that of freshwater and saltwater. Specifically brackish water has a salinity between 1.001 and 1.022. Beyond that it is considered marine. Some brackish species can live in full marine, but very few can live in freshwater their whole lives.

Brackish isn't that difficult to do. Granted it does require one more step than the average freshwater tank, but it's not impossible. And certainly not as complicated as saltwater. I thought about doing a brackish setup before for a dragon goby and archer fish. Not a lot of plants for brackish, tho.

I really want to do a saltwater tank in the future.

But I also want to do a giant sorority tank and maybe a goldfish tank.

And axolotyls.

Ahhh the possibilities
