    Karlos where did your information come from mate? I reckon that question can’t really be answered, as it depends on a few factors. Temperature, the types of food being used, the frequency of meals and water changes will all have an effect for starters.

    Peacock gobies have been commercially-produced for years so should do fine in loads of water types but the pH in its natural waters is between 7.0 – 8.0 if I remember right. The habitats themselves cover a small area and are in a virtually inaccessible bit of rain forest meaning wild caught fish are basically unavailable.

    If we could get more info about what your mate was feeding and how often etc. it’d be good.

    yep, this is a little old but since I’m new I can be forgiven right?

    my short answer…..Eternity.

    but I’m not the very best of mom’s when it comes to feeding. My spawn started out in a 5 gallon tank with partial wc’s 3 times a week for the first 6 weeks or so. They primarily ate microworms.
    Then I moved 27 youngsters into a lightly planted 10g. They got a variety of live bbs, microworm and I started them on flake. 50% water changes once a week.
    This resulted in 16 of them disappearing.

    The remaining 11 are now in a 20 long eating yummy high protein flake, frozen bloodworm and frozen bbs. The biggest might be an inch TL and they’re 5-6 mos old.

    eternity….

    Much better to keep an existing topic going than start a pointless new one K.
