Brachygobius Doriae

The Brachygobius Doriae are very cute little gobies that recently caught my attention. Information about these fishes are sketchy and sparse although these fishes can be commonly found in the aquarium trade. These little colorful fishes that I observed loves shallow clear waters with sandy bed and have ability to 'adhere' to any surface againts water current. Unfortunately they are picky eaters and prefer to attack small live food like baby shrimps. They can also be territorial although small groups of them can be spotted lying together to ambush passing 'food'. Some of the BumbleBee Gobies are from brackish waters while others are from freshwater rivers.
