Anyone had experience with Gobiodon laying eggs atleast, mine are VERY fat around the belly. Very distinct bulges happening. Need to get pics ASAP.

Do I need a seperate thread if I have a pair of G. okinawae now? ;)

ben you probably do need a seperate thread, as the spawning etc may very well be different for different species.

I dont know anything about this group, but i would assume a fattening would only last a day maybe 2.

Well I was excited to recieve my two G. okinawae, and they settled in and acclimatised well. They were sharing a frag tank with my pair of B&W O's, but one has "vanished". I even placed some foam on the overflows, so there is NO chance they could fall into the return pump in the third (and bottom) tank. My initial thought was B&W O aggression, but thewy show NONE to the one remaining goby. He even sits with them and uses their pot, and no chasing/aggression whatso-ever. He was the smaller of the two, so perhaps he was weak and just passed naturally.

Dissapointed, but I might have a new thread in here with another species by tonight, stay tuned! :pirate:

Edit: Picked up Another G. okinawae today. Much bigger, and was eating brine like a champ at the LFS. Also bought a pair of G. erythrospilus, which I could not see eating in the LFS. They were large, and had full stomach cavities, but it was a gamble.

Seaview. It was by chance, Nam walked in, saw them, and called me straight away.

As of this morning, one was dead. I took him out, and he has severe head injuries, which I couldnt see in the bag. He is preserved in Vodka until I can get him to uni and see whats in his stomach. :( Im getting tired of these losses.

No breeding. The second G. histrio has again found his way to the second tier, so I am going to make some guards for the overflows today.

Feeding, they have always been on everything I put in the tank, which is good. I might start a live brine shrimp hatchery, to encourage me to feed live food more often.

I have made a little something for when I get the pair back into the same tank together. I wanted more of a "colony" shaped piece, but just didnt have anything big enough.

It hasnt hit water yet though, I wonder how it will go?
