    I love him!! He's in my 16 gallon tall brackish tank with guppies. The tank is kept around .008sg. He's there for population control if you know what I mean lol

    Every now and again a baby will survive, but for the most part, I am able to keep a well stocked, not overstocked, tank of beautiful guppies!

    Here he is in all his glory!

    I am lucky to have a couple of very nice fish stores by me. Sometimes I have seen these in chain stores, and I have even seen them sold as FW fish :flipa:

    They are neat fish. I have researched these guys and it seems that unless there's 5 or more of them, they need to be kept as the only bumblebee goby of the tank, any less and they get really territorial. He eats freeze dried brine shrimp, frozen foods, and he loves live bloodworms and brine shrimp.

    What a cutie! My local Petsuppliesplus has gotten them in a couple of times, but I have stayed away from them since I don't have a brackish tank up and running. Now I have heard of several people keeping them in FW.....any ideas/suggestions on that topic? Do they do better in BW or is hard FW okay?

    brackish brackish brackish. They may survive in fw, but they won't be happy or at their top health.

    Brachygobius aggregatus is a species of bumble bee goby whihc i own. they are in full freshwater and living a healthy and long life. they are schooling so i have 4. they water is crystal clear and top water quality. i belive this species are freshwater, and do very well living with other fish such as gouramies, livebearers and most tetras. all mine are acting as they should, eating well and had no illness ever. i have had these ones over a year now, from another fish keeper who said he had them a while in freshwater.

    Does anyone know if there are different subspecies maybe that one survives better in BW and the other does well in FW? I would love to have a couple because they are just sooooooo cute, but don't want to set up a BW tank right now. (Although I am considering it for a Fig8!) And there is some debate about Fig8's actually that their natural habitat is FW, but the water is very hard, which is why they survive better in BW because the salt gives the necessary minerals and such that may not be in tapwater.

    its a double edges sword kimmers about F8's. people have different views if they are brackish water or not. IMO, they are both, they need crystal clear, top kotch freshwater quality, or brackish water, both which are easy to have and maintain. lots of people have BBG and F8s together in brackish, and many BBG are brackish. ive heard Brachygobius aggregatus can survive in low end brackish water too.if you would like a freshwater BBG, look for Brachygobius aggregatus, they are freshwater. as for brackish, Brachygobius xanthozona i belive is brackish, they do need slighley akaline water and medium hard - hard hardness. you want to keep there water temperature about 25 to 30oC.

    Well, I have nice hard water (maybe that is why I have so enjoyed my puffers.....they love my water!). The BBG's I find have been at Petsuppliesplus, which is horrible about scientific names, so I would be at a loss as to whether they are FW or BW species. Is there any marked difference in their appearance that would make it possible to differentiate between the 2?
    Since my Mother's Day is screwed with a sick kid, I may just go pick up some FIG8's PSP got in this week that actually look GOOD for a change, and some of the BBG's they got in and spend the day setting up and cloning a new tank!!!! Sounds like a great alternative to me!
