Goby, you got some 'splaining
I finally found true Siamese flying fox and bought two. The
next day there was only one, but my Knight Goby had a big
belly and a wry smile on his face. This fish has never been
aggressive and I believe that I read that it was not a fish
carnivore. Has anyone ever heard of Knight's eating smaller
fish? I checked the entire tank and can't find the other flying
fox, which was 1/4 of the size of the (healthy) knight goby.
- I think just about any bigger fish will eat a smaller one
if opportunity arises. I Will ask some people with knight
- I copied this from the net on knight gobies.
Alias fan dancer gobies.
Scientific Name. Stigmatogobius adanundio. -------------------------------------------------------
Comments. Fan Dancer Gobies are brackish water fish. They
can gradually adapt to living in either freshwater or saltwater
but do best in water with 1 Tablespoon of aquarium salt per
each 5 gallons of aquarium water. They are bottom dwelling
fish that are energetic, mildly aggressive, and have huge
appetites. Feed them with live or frozen food several times
a day. Fan Dancer Gobies are also called Knight Gobies. Since
they eat live foods....maybe!
- I once had a knight goby...great fish..fun to watch. I never
had problems with it bothering other fish as all..although
I have also read things like what Joyce wrote, so maybe it
is possible. Mine was always a recluse. Curt
- I asked the people with Knight gobies and they said it was
possible. They will sometimes pick on the smaller BB gobys
- I just read a post from someone I know with knights. She
put two platies in with them and they really creamed one of
them before she could save it. She said the knight just grabbed
it in it's mouth even though the platy was pretty big I guess
sometimes they really do get aggressive
