Figure of eights and bumble bee gobies
 
Does anyone have any experience of mixing Figure of Eight Puffers and Bumble Bee Gobies, I've done loads of research about compatibility (tank size and water parameters spot on for them both) but there's nothing like other peoples experience, do you recommend or will they fight? The puffs are 2 inchs average in size and have always been very peaceful. DO NOT want fights and unnessecary fish deaths on my hands

I have always heard that F8's can be one of the most aggressive fish in the tank (puffers have a bad reputation of being bullies). They have powerful "beaks" and they can seriously hurt other fish.

Bumble bee gobies are somewhat weak, and partly blind from what I have heard. My problem with brackish is how few compatible combinations there are. It may work fine (this is a 40g tank you are talking about?), but at this point I can't recomend them, although I am not sure I am saying it can't work at the same time.

Hi yes, this is for my 40 g puff tank, they have loads of room to swim and the tank looks a bit empty! Although I'm sure they appreciate the space. :lol:
