The Bumble Bee Goby is a small, bottom dwelling fish that is distinguished by its solid unbroken black stripes and bright yellow body. It is best to keep a pair in a tank not less than 10 gallons, and thrives well in a temperature range of 73-85 degree Fahrenheit and pH of 7-8.5. The Bumble Bee Goby is considered a highly aggressive and territorial among its own species, and overstocking will result in tremendous amount of quarreling and possible injury issues. We suggest to keep a thick sand bed that is considered a proper substrate for bumblebee gobies, since it will allow them to move freely and burrow on occasion. Being a tricky eater, its difficulty of care raises and that makes the Bumble Bee Goby not-so-good choice for a beginner aquarist. The live or frozen brine shrimp, daphnia and white worms are all suitable choices for this tiny fish. The Bumble Bee Goby is an opportunistic style feeder and snaps at anything that might swim or float by. It should be fed with live food, and prefers to eat the present tubifex and blood worms in the tank, which does not make it a reef safe species. You'll normally find the Bumble Bee Goby hiding out in solitude or sitting patiently for food on the bottom. It loves to swim quite often and you'll be able to view it active both during the day and at night. Therefore, it is also known to ?buzz? from one surface to another inside the aquarium. The Bumble Bee Goby grows up to an average length of around 2 inches in the aquarium, and is well suited for a community style tank.

Gobies compose one of the largest family of fish in the ocean. These small fish live around reefs or on sandy flats. Many of the Gobies are known for their burrowing behavior. These fish use burrows in the sand for safety. Some of the Goby species are known to share their burrows with Pistol Shrimp; behavior that can be duplicated in the home aquarium. Most Gobies have cupped ventral fins that nearly join just below their gill plates that serve as perching mechanisms so the Goby can always be on the lookout in a resting position. The Goby is a tremendous addition to the home aquarium.
