Red head goby breeding log

Recommended Posts

After more than $500 invested in these gobies, finally I get to attempt raising their larvae.

They are just darn small although they are at 6 days. They will be eating rotifers for another 2 weeks. <_<

really admire your endeavour, dedication and persistence, Bro Fuel.

Met you once at Joe P's place quite a number of years back.

Never thought you will become such a professional breeder.

2 Thumbs up!

That's right.

Raising larve is one thing.. raising them in a small black bucket is another.. :upsidedown:

Thanks everyone for the encouragement. Having larvae is one thing, getting the larvae to metamorphose into a fish is another. For red heads I believe it will take around a month, about a week longer than dottybacks.

Previous try I got them past 2 weeks but I gave up as they did'nt seem to grow and I only had 2 larvae left. Now I still have easily 100+ larvae estimated and they do seem to be growing. I might have underfed them the previous attempt. I would have used a bigger container for them for less work & less monitoring, but have space constraints at the moment so got to make do with what I have.

Apologies for the poor quality pic but it is hard to take photos of larvae that small without a microscope to magnify them.

No need to anticipate so much..make me very stress for results. :cry:

Even if I get fish out of these larvae, from what I read they need about 6-7 months to be big enough for most tanks. :cry2:
