I just got a 3" blue-lined goby from Petco and I couldn't help but notice that its got a really big nose. I don't know much about these fish but I have always had my pleco's, catfish and other fish in the 50-60mm range.

Does the fish not have much olfactory sense? I'm new to fish and haven't had my first fish yet.

I wouldnt call it a nose, I'd call it a boney snout, its also a dorsal fin that has been broken off to the right. the fish can swim and it feeds on algae, but it does have a very large mouth. it will take a small amount of food, and if you feed it with a very dry food it will actually stick it to your finger and eat it. its not aggressive and I love mine

thanks for the information.

Doesn't seem to me like the nose is much of a problem.

Just kidding. I know what it's supposed to look like.

Does the fish have a name? I had a fish similar to this that was named Gino.

That picture with the white markings looks like a fish I saw before. The pattern is almost exactly the same, and the fins are definitely very fishy looking, but then I could see the same thing in the picture of the fish you have posted in your sig. There is something off about it that I can't quite place though.

I'd take that bet, and I'm good enough with English to even say that in writing.

It looks a lot like a "red eye" and that, unfortunately, is common to many tropical fish and one that I don't have many of on my tank. My only problem with it is that it looks so unnatural. It looks more like a fish with an illness.

So I went to petco today to get a new fish today, and I saw this thing! It's very similar to what I saw in the pic you posted earlier!

He says its a tetra because of the markings. Does it look to anyone else like a tetra in the pic? I have 3 tetras that were all dumped in one day and this one was the only one I could keep. I'll take good care of it now!

Tetras are actually very popular, you can buy different colors in different sizes. My fish store sells several different colors, so if you would like you can ask them what color they have and they will order it for you.

When you get it from the store keep it in a bowl, don't put it in the tank yet, that way the water is still clean.

There are several things in the water that might eat it.

The one in the tank was not eating, so he just came out so I could examine him more closely. He did not jump out of the bowl or anything.

He seems to be swimming around in circles and I am not sure what he is doing.

The water in the tank is very high ammonia and I know that this should be taken care of and fixed, but he was only swimming just fine before I added the fish and so far, just fine after I got him out. I have not tested his ammonia levels yet.

Do I need to do anything other than keep the tank clean? I can't see anything in the water, or on him, that I would think would be hurting him.

Well....the tetras aren't the only fish in the tank. We have 2 other guppies that are not aggressive with him.

I have just been taking care of the tank the best I know how.

I have changed the water weekly and made sure I never let it sit over 24 hours.

I have been having a hard time finding anything to try and eat for him. Is this a regular thing?

I do remember reading somewhere to make a fish dinner.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I also have a guppy and 2 fire anemones, if that helps.

Thank you very much.

Hi AGB!! Welcome to the forum!

The tank is going to be ok with him in it! You need to change the water every week for best results.

Keep an eye on his ammonia levels, don't let them get above .15 ammonia. It can also be caused by not having enough light (but that's a whole other thread!). If it gets above 1 or 2 ppm, it is time to get another light source.

The guppy in the tank, no matter what, will be a good food source. Do you keep food for him? If so, you should do so.

You should also do what I did, which was put some frozen bloodworms in with his food. They come in little bags, but freeze well. They look like white worms and have a red, juicy, blood-red "blood" in them. I do this with my other tank and it really seems to help all the fish, no matter what. They will accept them and eat them as soon as they thaw, which is amazing because I freeze them for at least a month.
