The Bumblebee Goby, also known as the Brachygobius xanthozonus, is a small freshwater fish species that belongs to the Gobiidae family. It is native to Southeast Asia, particularly Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Singapore. The Bumblebee Goby gets its name from its distinctive black and yellow striped pattern, resembling the colors of a bumblebee.

These gobies have a unique appearance and behavior, making them a fascinating addition to freshwater aquariums. They have elongated bodies and can grow up to 1.5 inches (4 cm) in length. Their coloration consists of alternating black and yellow stripes that extend from head to tail. The fins are transparent or have a slight yellow tint.

Bumblebee Gobies are relatively peaceful but can be territorial towards their own species, especially during breeding. Therefore, it is recommended to keep them in small groups of three to five individuals, providing enough space and hiding spots for each fish. They prefer aquariums with sand or fine gravel substrate, as they like to sift through the substrate in search of food.


To maintain the highest quality, all fish undergo a one-week quarantine upon arriving at our warehouse before being made available for sale. This practice helps ensure the health and well-being of the fish we offer to our customers.

Live aquatic life is exclusively shipped on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays.  If an order is placed between Wednesday and Sunday, it will be held until the following Monday, unless overnight shipping is selected. This schedule might change due to holidays or other unforeseen circumstances 

As with all live animal sales, there is a risk that they may arrive dead (DOA). If this is the case then a picture of the dead fish WITHIN THEIR ORIGINAL UN-OPEN BAG must be sent to us. 

If the fish die anytime after they are released into their tank, that responsibility falls on the owner and no refund can be provided. 

To qualify for the Live Arrival Guarantee, you must be present to receive the fish during the first delivery attempt. If you will not be home for delivery we suggest you arrange for the delivery service to hold your package at their facility for pickup, allowing the package to sit on your porch in extreme hot or cold weather is obviously not the best option for your new aquatic life.
