My Australian Gobies

Post by snapperhead on October 4th 2011, 4:42 am

Bridled Goby Arenigobius bifrenatus.2 ,Half bridled Goby Acentrogobius frenatus 2, largemouth goby Redigobius macrostoma 3, Girdled Goby ..And Yellow fin Goby 2 (introduced species).

The largemouth Goby is thin bodied and swims/floats with interesting dance like movements and only extends its dorsal fins when swimming like a Feluccas egyptian sailboat.

Cool looking fish. Do yours have more color? And what's the author of the book?

Fishes of Australia's southern Coast . isbn 9781877069185

By Martin Gamon, Dianne Bray, Rudie Kuiter .

Rudie Kuiter has a few Temperate Australian books and has a great Temperate Sea Horse and pipe fish book. He's a well known marine biologist ,marine photographer,and taxonomist..

Mine are a little more pearl white with more defined marks the eye color is a brighter yellow under DT lights ..I love how Gobies make the bottom of the tank more alive .

Thanks! I would definitely agree with you. I prefer fish in most every column of the tank, but not to the point where it looks crowded.
