Cooranbong Aquatics


Bumblebee Goby (Brachygobius doriae) is a very colourful and interesting species of fish. Its origin is traced to Malaysia and Indonesia. The colourful Bomblebee Goby will do well in an aquarium. Originally, they flourish in fresh and brackish water and love to stay in coastal and lowland areas.

They will flourish well in an aquarium, and the least size of the aquarium should have a base dimension of 45 cm x 30 cm or its equivalent. They are more comfortable in habitats where they have enough of hiding places as well as cover. The filtration should not be strong, as mid-level of filtration will work well with them. If necessary, coral sand can be mixed into the substrate to act as a buffer.

Artemia and Daphnia are perfect live foods for Bomblebee Goby. Frozen foods are also acceptable, in most cases, however, they ignore dried foods. They are best kept in a species-only setup.
