Latin Name: Brachygobius Doriae

Water quality: 22-28°C, pH 7-8.5 Salinity should be kept at 1.005 for optimum health.

Compatability: Are best kept in a species-specific set-up, Although males in particular are territorial towards one another a group of 6 or more should be the minimum purchase since when such numbers are present aggression is spread between individuals plus the fish are bolder and exhibit more natural behaviour.

Diet: Small live foods such as Artemia, Daphnia, etc, should be considered essential although some specimens will learn to accept  frozen alternatives.

Inhabits both fresh and brackish water, and generally restricted to lowland, coastal environments including mangrove swamps, estuaries, and tidal streams. Substrates thus tend to be composed of mud, sand and silt with overlying organic material such as leaf litter, mangrove roots, and submerged driftwood.
