Like their extremely popular saltwater counterparts, freshwater and brackish water gobies are fairly peaceful and small bottom-dwellers that can typically be found perching on rockwork, plants, decorations and other surfaces in the aquarium. They have only recently become more popular and available for freshwater aquariums and the demand for freshwater gobies has been steadily increasing in recent years.
Many of the "freshwater" gobies available to aquarists are actually found in brackish water environments (between freshwater and saltwater, typically with a Specific Gravity of about 1.005 to 1.015) or travel between freshwater and brackish water. It is important to know what environment your goby comes from, since a sudden change from freshwater to brackish or vice versa can be very stressful and dangerous to the fish. Some species start life in freshwater as juveniles, but need an increasing salt level as they mature.
Size, temperament and diet varies greatly within this group. Most fish are carnivorous or omnivorous and are best fed a varied diet of meaty items and some vegetable matter. They are not terribly picky on the whole and will usually accept frozen foods and prepared foods like flakes and pellets over time.
