Ctenogobius shufeldti & Microgobius gulosus
Posted 16 July 2014 - 11:54 AM
Per chance, does anyone have any information on the species? Specifically, whether it is possible to breed them in aquaria.
(I keep and bred several rhinogobius species -- reasonably closely related Asian fish -- and it would be very interesting to try a native species, if I can breed them too).

Actually per fishbase clown gobies are found from TX to MD.... but I guess most are not fully freshwater...

Great! Thanks for your support and welcome. Please take some time and read about NANFA on the website. http://nanfa.org/ And keep your eye open to info on our annual convention, held in various states across the country(mostly in the east), and be sure to talk with your regional rep. Eastern New York, would be Mike Lucas. I don't much like the guy myself, but he can be somewhat helpful. Keepnatives is his forum handle. http://forum.nanfa.o...20-keepnatives/
Sorry Mike, had to do it considering all the grief I get from Blaylock.
Really, you won't find a better guy than Mike Lucas.

Are you saying I cannot have the gobies today?

The abstract of the Springer article says
After spawning, males camouflage burrow entrances with sand and females brood developing young for 4 days. Males continue to guard the covered nests in 50% of observed brooding periods.
I'd think that guarding fry for four days would only make sense if the fry is large enough to do a substantial development during this time?...which kind of implies that the fry is large enough to start with (cf. most rhinogobius, fry is vulnerable for the first 4 days or so, and guarding would have made a big survival difference...not that they do it.)

The article does mention that the young school in the water column along the shoreline after leaving the nest and have fully formed fins and eyes, matching the positions in adults. They are not clear on whether there is a planktonic phase or not, but it seems to imply that there isn't much of one and that they transform into miniature versions of the adults rather quickly.
