Notes: This hardy fish owes it’s popularity to it’s small size and beautiful coloring. These fish don’t always accept commercially prepared food, so it is necessary to keep some live food handy. Peacock gobies are not in fact true gobies – but sleeper gobies, a different family of fishes. Knight and Bumblebee gobies are good examples of true gobies. This fish is peaceful, although some flaring and mock fighting may break out between individuals.
