Bumble Bee Goby Fish

The bumblebee goby is hands-down one of our staff favourites at Melbourne Tropical Fish. These interesting and adorable little critters steal the show in almost any aquarium, and we’ve heard from countless owners who can’t stop talking about them.

But there are some aspects of bumblebee goby care that you’ll need to be comfortable with if you plan on getting one for yourself. These are fish that need brackish water and have specific diet requirements in order to thrive.

Beyond salinity levels, bumblebee gobies are relatively hardy. They like slightly alkaline water and warm temperatures. Here are the parameters to keep an eye on: Water temperature: 72 to 84 degrees Fahrenheit (73.5 to 79 degrees is ideal). A little bit of rock salt would aid in making the water brackish.
