I'm new here so first of all Hi from sweden.

I just found this site an few ours ago. Really glad i did and it seems i can get all the info i need from exsperienced people.

I admitt i haven't searched around much as i first thought i could tell you a little about my tank project that i gona start in a few weeks. This was suposed to end up as a saltwater and with time a reef tank, but i reacently scraped this plan after 2 years planing.

Well anyways. A few months later i found out about fresh/brackish gobies. So with mostly gobie in mind for the planed reef this was a great suprise. So yet again it was time for reading.

 

As for gobies i have found both R.nantaiensis, candidianus and rubromaculatus for sale.

Are all these true freshwater? This info has been the most confusing for me and i have read brackish etc.

 

Setup info.

Tank dimensions. 100x60x34cm lxwxh with water depth around 30cm. A rocky stream tank is what i'm going for and if possible non planted or with just some grass like plant. I guess that could look good and maybe help with nitrate some.

I've decided to get the Sicce whale 500 external filter, and in this i will use a media called Biohome ultimate, filter foams and probably some activated carbon.

Depending on if i get dead spots in the tank i will also get a stream pump like the Jebao RW,

Aqurium light can be a fun gadget, and with a reef budget i will spend some money here. So either the controlable LED's kessil or Ecotech radion for fresh water.

 

That's all i have for now.

Regards

Welcome grusus. I can tell you that these are fresh water fish. I haven't kept any of those sp. so will leave the rest to someone who has. Have a look at the profiles in the knowledge base.

Thanks!

Nice to hear i can keep gobies without having to bother with salt.

Yeah i've read that care sheet several times and was not sure if i should trust that or other sites. Now i know i can.

Matt writes the best care sheets anywhere to be found! There's lots of bad info out there. Search rhinogobius and read through some of the threads by Mikev and Jutta. Here's a start.

Again with who to trust and not. I've read alot on ferraqua.de before joining the forum, tho without confirmation from other people it's hard to know. I've been in the  reptile/salamander hobby for 15years and have read so much crapy care info during my days, and when it comes to fish i am actually a total beginner with mostly only some basic aquarium knowledge.

But now after a few ours reading here and talking with you i finally know ferraqua etc is the real deal, and i also know the setup i have in mind will do more than fine for any of these 3 species. So thank you for that!

This store are willing to shipp to me and have several species. I've tried 6 online stores and got 1 yes, that is not so bad.

I haven't decided for which Rhinogobius species yet, but from my reeding they seem to have about the same care as the 3 mentioned in this thread. For those interrested..

I like this one as well. "Schismatogobius roxas" They are however very small you know.
