Overview

The Fan Dance Goby is from Asia and is also known as the Knight Goby. It is a bottom dwelling fish that has the typical goby appearance with a blunt rounded nose. The coloration of this goby is mostly silver with many black dots covering the body and fins. The fins are very full and dramatic and lend this fish its common name, Fan Dance.

Setting up an aquarium to match its natural environment will require plenty of plants and rocks. It can be kept in both fresh and brackish water, and tends to do better with some salt in the aquarium water. It is a shy fish that will appreciate both live and artificial plants that it will use for hiding. If live plants are to be used, choose a variety that will handle the increased levels of salt in the water.

The males of this species have larger fins while the females are smaller and colored light yellow. These gobies will spawn on the roof of caves or flowerpots, and the male will stay with the eggs in order to guard them.

Feed the Fan Dance Goby a quality flake food and meaty items such as brine shrimp, bloodworms or tubiflex worms.

Ideal tank mates include: Brackish Water Fish, or Rainbowfish, Gouramis, Barbs, Livebearers, South American Cichlids, Danios, Plecos, and other scavenger Catfish.

Approximate Purchase Size: 1-1/4" to 1-1/2"
