Bumblebee Gobys Freshwater or Brackish Water Fish?

I am just wondering about these Bumble Gobys I bought. If freshwater is ok for them? The lfs said it was cool to keep them in a reg. freshwater tank. Do they need Brackish water to live?

Also just asking if they are brackish is it possible for them to survive in a salt water tank. I don't want to sound stupid by asking that I am just really curious. Most Gobys i've heard of are Salt water so my wife and I were questioning rather or not they could survive the transfer.


Salt Water Tank: 10 Gallon Tank
6 Blue Leg Hermit Crabs, 2 Nassa Snails, 8 Pounds Of Live Rock
35 Gallon Hexagon Fresh Water Planted Tank
1 DoJo Loach, 1 Pleco, 3 Fancy Tailed Danios, 8 Rosie Reds, 3 Gallon Eclipse Tank,1 Male Betta, 1 Gold mystery snail

Ideally they should be in a brackish enviroment. I couldnt' find anything on full marine or not so, I'd say I wouldn't chance it.

they are definitly brackish water. Not salt and not fresh. I guess the lowest I would keep them in would be .005 sg (which is really low)
