Goo Obo Gudgeon (Mogurnda nesolepis)

The Goo Obo Gudgeon or Mogurnda nesolepis is a beautiful freshwater fish that gets its name from the Goo Obo Falls in Papua New Guinea, where is was first discovered. These fish are often kept in an aquarium setting and come in a variety of colors. Females of this species will range from yellow to a dark orange with a red underbelly. They tend to be larger than their male counterparts who can be green or orange with red spots on their body.

Goo Obo Gudgeon are very peaceful and considered to be easy to care for as well. The following water conditions in a freshwater aquarium are acceptable, 74-82° F, KH 2-5 and pH 5.5-7.0. The great part about these fish is that you only need about a 15 gallon aquarium to house them in, because they only grow to about 3" in maximum length. One thing to note about these beautiful fish is that they are quite sensitive to high nitrate levels, so changing the water often is a must!
The Goo Obo Gudgeon are omnivores that should be fed pellet foods, flake foods, brine shrimp and daphnia. They prefer to have a few hiding spaces and if you want them to breed you can do so by raising the temperature a couple degrees and providing them with a small cave. After the pair spawns, be sure to remove them from the tank because they are known to eat their own eggs! It only takes a couple days before the Goo Obo Gudgeon eggs hatch.
