This very colorful Goby-like fish doesn’t really belong to the Gobiidae family but to Eleotridae. It originates from New Guinea, the island of many stunning fish species. Males grow to about 7 cm while females stay smaller, about 5 cm.

The Peacock Gudgeon is a very peaceful fish and can be kept with other peaceful species (ex. Rainbow fishes). The male Tateurndina ocellicauda will indeed show some “pushy” aggression towards the female (and other fish) when caring for the eggs. This kind of aggression doesn’t lead to injuries.
The male looks after the eggs on his own, but only until they hatch, after which he sees them as a snack opportunity. During this caring time he will not leave the cave, not even to eat. Therefore, one should not be surprised if one of the males vanishes for a few days.
The fry will take infusoria as the first food, but after a while should be provided with freshly hatched artemia nauplii. The fry grow very slowly.

Feed them a variety of food as they are omnivorous.
