25f. Perchlike fishes (6): Gobies (49)

  • Schismatogobius roxasi

    17. March 2015

    The genus Schismatogobius contents currently 10 described species. All are small, only 3-5 cm long pure freshwater inhabitants. As no species is of commercial value and the tiny fish burry themselves extremely fast in the sand when disturbed the whole genus is only very unsatisfyingly researched so far. Two species have been reported fromTaiwan: Schismatogobius […]

  • Tateurndina ocellicauda

    10. December 2014

    We received wonderful, fully grown bred specimens of this beautiful, small freshwater goby. Dominant old males develop a mighty humphead, females a round belly swollen from eggs.

  • Tateurndina ocellicauda

    10. December 2014

    This wonderful goby originates from Papua-Newguinea, but in the trade almost exclusively bred specimens are available. The fish belongs to the so-called sleeper-gobies. These fish have been named after a reflecting layer over their eyes. This looked for the first observers as if the fish would have closed its eyes for sleep. T. ocellicauda becomes […]

  • Rhinogobius formosanus

    1. November 2014

    We received again this pretty freshwater goby from Taiwan. The determination of the numerous species of Rhinogobius is often very difficult (see also http://www.aquariumglaser.de/en/rhinogobius-rubromaculatus_en_1637.html). R. formosanus is a pleasant exception of that rule, for it differs from all species of Rhinogiobius from Taiwan by the unique red coloration of the face. Taiwan was formerly known […]

  • Rhinogobius rubromaculatus

    26. September 2014

    In the aquarium hobby we only started in discovering the large diversity of the small freshwater gobies of the genus Rhinogobius. This time the scientists were faster: 116 species have been described to date already! Sadly the distinguishing features that allow the determination of the species cannot be seen in many cases in live specimens. […]

  • Stigmatogobius sadanundio

    Stigmatogobius sadanundio

    21. July 2014

    Most species of goby are ground dwelling fishes. Only few species have a free swimming behaviour. The knight goby is one of these rare exceptions. We can offer this pretty goby from India on a regular basis. Knight gobies live in estuaries and can live both in pure fresh and in pure marine water. However, […]

  • Violet Gobies arrived!

    24. June 2014

    Sadly we can offer the Violet Goby, Gobioides broussonnetii, only very occasionally. Now we obtained once more a shipment from Colombia that contained this odd bottom dweller. The maximum length reported in literature for this fish is around 40 cm. These gobies are absolutely peaceful plankton feeders. Fine sand should be offered for this fish […]

  • Odontamblyopus rubicundus

    5. May 2014

    This 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 […]

  • Boleophthalmus boddarti

    10. March 2014

    The mudskippers (Oxudercinae) represent a subfamily on their own within the goby family (Gobiidae). One can observe all steps from “normal”, aquatic species (for example in the genus Apocryptes) to partially land-dwelling, amphibic species (Periophthalmus) within the Oxudercinae. Members of the genus Boleophthalmus donĀ“t leave the water completely, but can be found in zones of […]

  • Wonderful Neon gobies arrived

    7. March 2014

    The Neon gobies of the genus Stiphodon are very difficult to determine, for the larvae develop in marine environment; so the species have a very wide distribution. The adult fish, however, live exclusively in freshwater. The males can change their coloration in a glimpse; the mating coloration is species-specific. Different species look extremely similar in […]
