Bumblebee Gobies are also known as Brachygobius xanthozona, these are small aquarium species of bottom dwelling fish. The size of these fish can be 1-2 cm when you buy them and the size of an adult Bumblebee gobies can reach up to maximum 4 cm. As you can tell from their name, they are colored like a bee with black and yellow stripes.

In order to differentiate female Bumblebee gobies from male you need to compare their color as male ones are brighter. Also, male gobies are more slender than the female gobies.

These fish have a great behavior. At first they might be a little shy, but after some time they will show their entire attitude. Male gobies are a bit territorial and they will immediately take their area in a tank. They may show a little aggressiveness regarding their territory, but it is nothing serious.

Naturally these fish are found in Indonesia, Vietnam and Thailand. Where they are usually found in rivers and streams, in which is brackish and has many hiding spots.

Feeding Bumblebee goby is the hardest part of keeping them, as it is a bit tricky to feed them. Usually they like to eat whatever that is floating around. So you cannot feed them with food that floats on the surface of the water, like flakes. They like eating live food as well as frozen food.







You have to keep in mind that bumblebee goby is a fish that dwells in brackish water and sometimes it is put into freshwater tanks.

Some aquarists successfully keep it in freshwater, but still ideal tank conditions for the fish is living in brackish water.
