Hi,

here are some new pictures today of the fish that came in as Papuligobius uniporus. They are looking great now and their fins etc have healed up as they had a few splits when they arrived.

I set a pair of these up in a small 12x8x8 and discovered some eggs today (and a battered female - but she will be fine)

any thoughts on egg care, fry care etc?

cheers

Hey Colin,

I personally would leave the eggs with the male and have a more frequent look at them. When the fry starts to hatch the whole cave would be transported in a small separate tank with a small sponge filter and an additional aeration placed near the eggs (keep the eggs in motion). Water just the same quality as with the adult. According to the eggs size I suppose the fry can be fed with fresh artemia nauplii.

Keep us updated ... nice gobies you have there!

Thanks HDP

I think I'll probably remove the male once the fry start to hatch...

The eggs are looking good, embryos clearly visible /happy.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="^_^" border="0" alt="happy.gif" />

So... an update /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

I think the eggs took ten days to hatch. not sure because I was away for the whole weekend at the AAGG conference and came back to find fry skipping about in the tank. They are free swimming and I have chucked in a good load of Paramecium and some microworms - which they seem to be eating.

I took the male out on Friday before I left just in case he was a fry-eater?

Looks like at least ten fry but they are just tiny slivers of glass, so hard to see just how many hatched out, could still be some in the cave?

...and update for the 11th of May.

 

I have about twenty of the fry left and they are growing on nicely. Not the fastest fry to grow but they are looking like miniatures of the parents now.

ca. 10mm

LOL no - not at all!!!!!! They like to have a good peck at each other and I think this is why I have so few from so many eggs... bit of siblicide going on here I think

Nice pics of the eggs and fry!

 

I saw some gobies at Maidenhead that look like these, do you reckon they are the same sp?

Yeah, looks the same although mine only looked as light for a couple days and generally the males were almost black when showing off... looks like a pair in the pics
