Question about gobies
I was going by a lfs today on the way home from a trip and saw a Goby I really liked. It was kept with freshwater fish, but I know many of them are actually brackish species. It was labeled as a Pearl Goby, and I thought maybe I'd have a lick of a chance that it was an actual name. Shame on me. No such thing as a Pearl Goby that I can find online. The guy said they have them in regularly, so I could probably get one if I wanted to go all the way back up there.
My question is: Are all gobies either brackish or saltwater? I want to find out now, so I can first decide if I want to do a brackish setup. I seriously doubt it's a freshwater species, if there are any at all, but it was such a nice fish and it was only three dollars... Oy, I should have just grabbed it. I hate it when I do things I know I'll regret. :?
Huh. MSN must have a crappy search engine, then. I can't access google, so that's probably why I couldn't find anything. Thanks Herefishy. Based on the photo on that page I'm not sure what they had at the lfs was actually a pearl goby, then. The gobies there were completely light sandy colored, with the barest of darker mottling. No black spots. Also, the second dorsal fin was a lot shorter. Maybe it's just me, though.
I wish I'd either had my camera with me or just gotten one. Geez.
Thanks again for the help. I'll probably just stick with a freshwater setup and make myself ignore the urge to have one.
