Knight Goby Care Guide

Blub

Knight Goby
(Stigmatogobius sadanundio)

Common names:
Knight goby, Spotted goby, Fan dance goby, Night goby.
Size: 8cm
pH: 7.5 – 8.5
Tempº: 20ºC - 26ºC (68 F - 78 F)
Tank region: Bottom layer
Origin: India to Indonesia
Gender: Males fins are larger than the female’s, and the female’s fins are light yellow.
Notes: As with most gobies, the Knight goby really does best in Brackish water. However, it can be kept in freshwater as long as the pH is fairly high. However, this species is relatively shy; disqualifying African cichlids as tankmates. It may eat smaller fish, so it definitely should not be included in a Nano. Ideal tank mates would be Sailfin mollies, who also enjoy Brackish conditions and are larger than Knight gobies. Fairly typical of gobies – this fish might not eat commercial foods and may only chomp on live foods so keep a good source of live food at the ready. Even so, this fish will accept prepared foods much more readily than other gobies, and is actually fairly omnivorous so provide it with veggies from time to time.
