Tank Raised Goby Cichlids!

Eretmodus cyanostictus Congo
Congo Goby Cichlid from Lake Tanganyika
F1 (offspring from wild caught parents)
2″-2 1/2″+ $30 each

The goby cichlids of Lake Tanganyika are among my favorite fish from the lake. Depending on the exact species (something that is often hard to determine) and the specific population these pair bonding mouth brooders can be bi-parental carriers of the eggs and fry or sometimes just maternal. Intra-specific aggression can be high with these small hoppers as they are used to defending the algae beds they graze in but I’ve had 3-4 pair happily live and spawn in a 75 gallon tank decorated with sand and rock along side some shell dwellers and a large group of Tropheus.

Fish Handling Advice

I would highly recommend you don’t drip acclimate. As the fish release waste (ammonia) in the water the pH also drops. That is good as ammonia becomes less toxic the lower the pH. But as you drip acclimate the pH rises and the ammonia becomes more and more toxic. Just allow the bags to warm or cool as needed and then open the bags, pull the fish out (or pour them into a net) tossing the toxic shipping water, and get the fish into the tank/clean water ASAP. Scarry, I know. But that is how I handle all of my fish. MUCH better results this way.
