Freshwater Gobies

Recommended Posts

In recent months I have become completely captivated by the quite rare "Rock Climbing" freshwater Gobies from the Sicydiine Family.

The lack of information on such an interesting group of fish really adds interest to already great looking and personality rich fish. There is a very small online community that is dedicated to successfully breeding and conserving the gobies as little is known about their status or behaviours.

I hope to contribute to the cause in the future, but as the fish can be a rarity that may not be any time soon. Currently I have two Sicyopterus Sp. (Cynocephalus) and will be looking into Sicyopus very soon.

Although I doubt there are many keepers in the province, out of interest do any of you have any experiences or specimens of these amazing fish? (Geniuses include: Stiphodon, Sicyopterus, Sicyopus, Lentipes, and many more) please share below!

I had Sicyopterus and they were cool.  One day they just up and died so unfortunately my experience and observations are limited.
