knight gobies.

Anybody here have these? How big do they get? Do they get along with bumble bee gobies? What other gobies can be kept in a Bw aquarium?

I have a knight goby in my 16 gallon brackish tank. They don't get more than 3 or 3.5 inches. They are generally peaceful. Not sure if they would get along with a BB goby or not.

Thanks for the reply. I'm guessing the ones i saw were knight gobies. They were in a brackish water aquarium and they were kinda a greyish color and not very big.

Here's a good picture of one in this profile:

I did a little poking around and it seems they can be territorial...the BB goby moreso. Both species need hiding spaces to create a territory.

If the ones you saw were young juveniles, they may not have developed spots yet. I am not 100% sure, but I don't think they are born with them...
