Bridled Gobies, Coryphopterus glaucofraenum, are a common goby found in a
wide variety of habitats throughout the Florida Keys. They are almost always found on sandy bottoms, and most often live in holes that they have excavated under rocks and ledges. They are basically clear with some dark spots and marks, and a few white specks. They are very easy to care for, and get along with just about any other fish.
Maximum size is about 2.5″, and we usually ship 1.5″ specimens. They don’t pick at corals or other invertebrates, and will eat almost any marine food. They will spend all of their time hopping around on the bottom or the tank, looking for bits of food.
Please Note: Any new fish purchased from us or from a local pet store should to be quarantined. All fish from anywhere in the wild can be possible carriers of bacteria and protozoa that can lead to an infection in your system, so we always recommend that you use some sort of quarantine system prior to adding them to your system. If you have a fish only system and can medicate the whole system, you may not need a separate quarantine tank. If you have a reef system that cannot be medicated, a good ultraviolet sterilization system should prevent any kind of disease outbreak. We medicate our system for bacterial infections and protozoans, but because we dont always hold our fish for long periods of time, there is no way to be sure all the protozoan cysts have been killed. A little bit of prevention will save you lots of trouble down the line.
