    Breeding Orange Firefish Goby

    Does anyone have any experience with or info on breeding firefish ? I've read that they are one of the easier to breed and that they need caves or pvc tubing to lay eggs but thats all I can find. Any help would be appreciated thanks.

    I don't have a tank yet

    Re: Breeding Orange Firefish Goby

    Albeit firefishes (Nemateleotris sp.) are fairly easy to BREED, getting the fry to settle out can be a long, frustratiing and harrowing ordeal.
    Most lay an egg ball that needs to be removed and hatched out in a Kreisel tank.
    There are a few people out there that have had success with them, I unfortunately am not one of them, my purples didn't last long enough to try.
    I've heard that either fires or gobies have high light requirements to settle out. (150W directly over the larval tank)

    Re: Breeding Orange Firefish Goby

    I can give you some info... it relates to the Purple Firefish, however I'm sure the same applies to Orange Firefish.

    The only problem is the difficulty in obtaining back issues of SeaScope. Do any of the local clubs have libraries or a few old salts who might have it?

    Re: Breeding Orange Firefish Goby

    Thanks for the info I'll try to track it down. Not as large of a community here in Edmonton but I'll see what I can do. If you get a line on where you can get back orders online I'd appreciate hearing about it because that likely to be where I'm gonna be searching.
