I mean Rainbow Gobies (Stiphodon ornatus), Neon Goby (Stiphodon atropurpureus), and so on. I know that gobies generally have two dorsal fins, but what are other differen...

Re: Sand

The other advantage of using shore sand is that is is rounded and will not harm the ...

Re: Tank size for dwarf chain loach

I would suggest minimum 20 gallons, 30 would be best

Re: Recent Loaches in a Show
