Odontamblyopus rubicundus

5. May 2014

goby from the lower reaches of the river Ganges belongs clearly to the
category “faces that can be loved only by a mother”. Despite the look
the fish that can reach up to 25 cm in length are very interesting. One
should be careful with possible tankmates. Any fish that fits the mouth
will be swallowed. The victim can be almost half as long as the
predator. And no fish will ever escape when it is once grappled by these
fangs… However, fish that are too large to be eaten are completely
ignored by Odontamblyopus rubicundus.
