Goby Bumble Bee
|Minimum tank size||10 gal/38 L (long)|
Bumblebee gobies are one of the smaller goby species with a maximum size of around 3-4 cm (1.2-1.6 inch). They lend their common name from their yellow and black striped appearance and short body shape, which will definitely remind you of bumblebees.
It’s almost impossible to distinguish between the different members of the Brachygobius genus as they look very similar. The same common name is used for all species in the trade because it’s nearly impossible for aquarium stores to figure out which exact variety they’re dealing with.
Male bumblebee gobies can be told apart from females by their more slender body shape and brighter coloration.
