Captive Bred White Spotted Dwarf Goby-Trimma cf caesiura

We are really excited to offer captive bred White Spotted Dwarf Gobies from Biota. These gobies are 100% aquacultured and trained to eat small pellets such as PE pellets, TDO pellets, frozen Mysis shrimp, Calanus, and more. These little gobies have nice bright mottled coloring and are robust! They tend to hang out on the sandbed and on the rocks in the aquarium. These little dwarf gobies add a lot of personality to the aquarium. We are very limited on these! They are very uncommon and perfect for someone looking for something unique to add to their aquarium. 

Size: ~0.75-1.25 inches. They will reach up to 2 inches with maturity.

The White Spotted goby can be housed singly or more than one. They are peaceful fish and friendly to keep with our captive bred seahorses. These fish are hardy. It is best to have a cover on your aquarium as they can be jumpy! We recommend having sand in your aquarium for them (not a bare bottom aquarium). 

 

This is for a Male/Female Erectus Seahorse Pair. 

Species: Hippocampus erectus, Common name: Lined Seahorse.

Beautiful bright silver saddling markings and tail bands. Line markings are more pronounced as the seahorse matures. Colors are yellow, peach or beige. Color is not fixed and seahorses can change color based on surroundings, diet, mood and other factors. Cirri is present on some individuals. Our breeders have been selected for producing beautiful saddling markings. Every single one is individually unique. They are stunning! If you have specific requests contact us and let us know.

This genetic line of seahorses originates from South Florida. We sell our Captive Bred seahorses when they are 4-5 months old and they are approximately 3-4+ inches. You can expect them to reach 5-7+ inches. 

This is the most common seahorse species hobbyist start out with. They are very hardy and great beginner seahorses!

Breeding: This species typically produces 50-500+ fry. Males are pregnant for 14-21 days. Fry typically hitch from day one. Newly hatched Artemia (brine shrimp) can be used as a first food for fry.

All of our captive bred seahorses are very healthy, active, friendly and full of personality. Our seahorses are trained to eat frozen Mysis shrimp from a young age. We recommend feeding our seahorses Hikari BioPure Mysis shrimp and PE Mysis shrimp twice daily. Seahorses are very social animals. They do best when kept paired or in a group.
