Water parameters for Sabanus Bumblebee Goby

The Sabanus Bumblebee Goby should be kept in an aquarium with the temperature ranging from 72 to 84 degrees Fahrenheit, and a Ph of around 7.

Description

Its requirements are quite similar to the others and it grows to only 3 cm at most. It is not as popular as most other bumblebee gobies.

A tank furnished with several rocks and plants is very important. Be particularly selective in choosing tankmates as it will not tolerate any intrusion in its territory.

Suitable tankmates are guppies, Celebes rainbowfish, mollies and the smaller glassfish.

Sexual dimorphism is unknown. They are not commonly available and therefore will fetch a relatively high price which is very questionable depending on the supply caught from the wild.
