BBG's/Bumblebee Gobies

Postby Gooburz » Thu Apr 19, 2012 10:01 am

So i've been looking for some info on these guys and not finding anything solid. Wouldn't mind putting a couple in the new tanks when i get them set up with my F8's. I'm going to be running a 55Gal with 3 F8's and then looking for around a 30Gal with 1F8 and some BBG's.

Basically what i'm wanting to know is Care level, what they eat, how often, ways to feed them because i've read they can be a pain to feed.....anything will help please

Mine weren't hard to feed. I started mine on live brine shrimp and then went to frozen brine. I think they are very easy to keep.

At one point I had a 20 gallon tank with just a bunch of BBG's they actually breed but the babies didn't survive I assume eaten by someone. They where there one day and gone the next.

Yea they eat pretty much any meaty foods. Mine ate mostly bloodworm. Mine were also easy to feed
It's amazing how easy maintenance is. If done regularly and thoroughly

I feel your pain, I am wanting to move, everytime I get close something crops up. People are getting wound up storing my extra tanks lol. I cannot keep them here or they will be setup again, not a good idea as I want my move to be stress free as possible

Oh i know about moving, been Navy for 5 years now and have moved twice as many times as years i've been in. FINALLY i'm somewhere where i will be for the next 5 years so once i get into this new place i'm not movin and I can get a good set up going (well a couple set ups). Gotta say though with my freshwater tank i've had i've become a pro breaking it down moving it and setting it back up lol.
