Fish Data : Peacock Goby


   The Peacock goby (Tateurndina ocellicauda) sports a remarkable display of beautiful colors and patterns. In addition to being beautiful, it is fairly easy to care for, have a peaceful temperament and rarely exceeds 7 cm in length. It is therefore a great addition to a community aquarium inhabited by other small and peaceful species that appreciate the same type of environment and water conditions. The Peacock goby is also known as the Peacock Gudgeon and the One-eyed sleeper goby.

   These fish hails from the island of New Guinea where it has been found in a limited part of eastern Pompau, near two small towns named Safia and Popondetta. This region is covered in rain forest and the Peacock goby habit consists of the many slow moving streams and ponds that can be found in this part of the New Guinean jungle. Due to the very limited range of this species and the inaccessibility of the rainforest, the Peacock goby was only known by the local New Guinean inhabitants until the mid 20th century. It was first stumbled upon by foreigners in 1953, and within two years it had been official described by John T. Nichols of the American Museum of Natural History in New York. It would however take an additional three decades before it was introduced to aquarists in Australia and Europe. 

    The Peacock goby like very clean water, so no slacking on the water changes! The male tends to harass the female slightly so plenty of hiding spaces should be provided. They Prefers soft acidic water and a dark substrate with heavy planting and floating plants for cover. Keep tank securely covered as they can and do jump.

     You can  feed them with chiefly on insects, insect larvae and small crustaceans and they will therefore prefer a similar diet in the aquarium. They love brine shrimp, mosquito larvae, bloodworms and similar foods.

    These fish is cave spawners , You should provide lots of small spaces. Spawning usually takes around a day and the male will guard and fan the eggs until they hatch (about 6-7 days). Fry are quite slow growing.
