The gobies have moved their operation to the back side of an aquarium magnet. Seems like the perfect opportunity to try out some artificial incubation. Excellent!!

Sorry. A lot of pet emergencies lately so I haven't been able to post much. They do not need a coral (though they look really cool with one). Good luck!

It took mine a really long time to get started spawning, probably close to a year. I think they spent a lot of time sorting out gender roles.

I think they may certainly spawn on a PVC tube, but I would guess that they would spawn on the outside rather than the inside.

Well,my current pair (F1 female) of G.okinawae like to hang on their coral branch but spawn in a PVC pipe.On the inside top,like damsels.
