I have a breeding pair of Randall's gobies and I have successfully collected some larvae. They are so tiny (just like the bullet head fry) that I think the rotifers are too big for them and I haven't seen them hunting yet. I have been adding extra live green water in their tank just in case they are eating it,,,
I have them in a ten gallon with a s.g. Of .019 and temp of 80. No nitrates or ammonia.
Has anyone else had experience raising these guys?

Sorry only had stonogobiops nematodes larvae for shrimp gobies and they would starve after the 4 th day unfortunately because the strand ( plicatilis) of rots that I had were too big.
You may want to try brachyonus rotundiformis if that isn't already what you have . If not maybe Copepods would work.

I have a question though... Is there any visible distinctive difference between your male and female ? Or like many other shrimp goby only a slightly bigger head or squarer jaw for the male ?
