Gobies again

Posted on September 2, 2012 at 9:45 AM

I moved the pair noted below to a more convenient tank for me last spring, as I was rebuilding my central system, and they were in the way.  They laid one more nest after the move, and then stopped laying.  That is, until NOW! I attempted to raise the nest that they laid a week and a half ago, even though there were less than 10 eggs. As of 2 days ago there was one tiny larva left, but I have not seen it since.  I have to search for it with a flashlight, as the nest was hatched in a black round tub, and the tiny larva is transparent. Probably it is gone.

Then, the other morning, as i was feeding the broodstock tanks, I began to feel panic for a couple of seconds, as the gobies were not darting around eating in their tank! Oh no!  A quick look into their PVC tube changed the panic to joy, as they were both in there, making fertilized eggs! This time, the gobies' nest is a big one, papa is taking good care of it, and I hope to have a big hatch on Monday.
