Red Lipstick Sicyopus Goby  – Sicyopus exallisquamulus

The fish you will receive are approximately 4cm


This little goby is a rare freshwater fish native to Japan, Samoa and the Phillippines. It is known for its vibrant Red and Orange colouration which the male specimens display. The females are not as dramatic but are still attractively marked. This fascinating fish is a graser which feeds on algae and biofilm and is an excellent fish for the smaller nano aquarium.

Adult Length: 5cm

Temperature Range 22-28 °C

pH Range: 6.5 - 7.5

Special Requirements:  Most importantly the water must be clean and well-oxygenated at all times so we suggest the use of either an over-sized filter, additional powerheads, flow pumps, or airstones. 

Tanks MatesMost small rasboras, tetras, loaches, and other small, peaceful fish are good tankmates. 

Feeding: Appears to be a specialised predator since it does not graze biofilm in the aquarium but willingly accepts small live or frozen foods such as bloodworm, Artemia, Daphnia, etc. Dried foods are ignored completely, and that this species does not make a good companion for small (live) invertebrates.
