Twinspot Goby Care Guide with Aquarium Size Requirement:

1. Species Overview:

  • The Twinspot Goby (Signigobius biocellatus) is a small, captivating fish known for its distinctive markings and interesting behavior. It is a popular choice for saltwater aquariums.

2. Aquarium Size:

  • Provide a suitable aquarium of at least 10 gallons for a single Twinspot Goby. Larger tanks of 20 gallons or more are recommended for multiple specimens or community setups.
  • Consider the goby's territorial behavior and provide ample hiding spots.

3. Water Parameters:

  • Maintain stable water conditions with a temperature range of 75°F to 80°F (24°C to 27°C).
  • Keep the pH level in the range of 8.1 to 8.4.
  • Salinity should be maintained between 1.020 and 1.025.

4. Tank Decor:

  • Create a sandy substrate as Twinspot Gobies enjoy burrowing. Provide live rock structures and caves for hiding.
  • Ensure that the aquarium has a tight-fitting lid to prevent escapes as these gobies may jump.

5. Diet:

  • Twinspot Gobies are carnivores. Offer a diet consisting of small, meaty foods such as live or frozen brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, and finely chopped seafood.
  • Encourage natural feeding behavior by allowing them to sift through the sand for small invertebrates.

6. Behavior:

  • Twinspot Gobies are known for forming monogamous pairs. If keeping a pair, introduce them together to avoid aggression.
  • They spend much of their time near the substrate and may establish territories.

7. Tank Mates:

  • Choose tank mates carefully, opting for peaceful species that won't outcompete or harass the Twinspot Goby.
  • Compatible tank mates include other small, peaceful reef fish.

8. Size of the Fish:

  • Twinspot Gobies typically grow to around 2 inches (5 cm). Provide sufficient space for their natural behaviors and swimming.

9. Disease Prevention:

  • Quarantine new arrivals before introducing them to the main tank to prevent the spread of diseases.
  • Monitor for signs of stress, parasites, or infections and take prompt action if needed.

10. Maintenance:

  • Perform regular water changes of 10-20% every two weeks to maintain water quality.
  • Keep the aquarium well-aerated, and monitor the sand substrate to ensure it remains clean.

By following these care guidelines and providing an appropriate environment, the Twinspot Goby can thrive and add charm to your saltwater aquarium.
