Stigmatogobius sadanundio (Knight Goby, Fan Dancer Goby)

A fairly large goby, perhaps the species most widely sold after the bumblebee goby. These fish are silvery-white and covered in small black speckles. Males have elongated dorsal fins. They like to swim in midwater, and are rather more active than some other gobies.


Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

A peaceful, predatory goby that works well with species too large to be eaten. Needs plenty of caves, but is otherwise not demanding. Males are territorial, so in small tanks take care not to overcrowd them. Adaptable as far as food goes, but prefers bloodworms and mosquito larvae. Some green algae is probably beneficial as well.

Only rarely bred in aquaria. Both parents guard the eggs, which are laid inside a cave. Once the fry are free swimming they need tiny live foods.

Family Group: Miscellaneous
Distribution South East Asia
Temperature 23-26C
Size 8 cm
Water Parameters Brackish; SG 1.005 recommended
Water PH -
