Like already stated, any aquacultured goby would be great. Neon gobies are popular and should be a good choice.

Thanks for the advise, I visited a LFS last week to see what captive bred they stocked, and was informed that saltwater fish (other than Clowns) were NOT propagated.:(

Pygmy Dart Gobies.
When you can find them they are usually sold in groups of 5 or 10. They are super small and are great for Nano or Pico.

Another great shoaling fish for Nano and Pico tanks. Usually sold in groups of 5 or more. (if you can find them).

I've been told that in order to get a foot in the door at my LFS I need to breed what they already stock, I plan to start with pajama cardinals and nail down my phyto/pod protocol, make some fat babies, then discuss why he needs to carry pygmy gobies.Love the pink eyes!

I would lean towards a species others have on here have bred successfully. So you can use those members as a resource on caring for their fry care, how to get them in the mood, etc)

Systems commercial breeders use are not always scalable to the hobbyist level. Captive bred butterflies are a big example)

In that vein trimma gobies i have seen a few threads on those able to breed them successfully as a hobbyist.

Any progress?
I am 20 days in on cycling new breeding tanks. I wanted to setup a completely clean system. Looking for breeding stock. I think I am going to pull the trigger in some juvenile Pajamas available in Phoenix from ORA. Thanks for asking.

I have read a few papers on trimma a feel confident that I can raise them.

I have read the threads and a few papers on trimma, I also have matt wittenrichs' book and I have good grasp of the process. I worry, however, about rehoming the fry, I can find no enthusiasm locally for homegrown gobies. I cant ship so the clubs and LFS are it.I know that now I am some "gonna do"rando on the interweb so I want to have a product ready to go. I figure everyone likes a pajama.

I like the trimma and eviota types, no fussy eaters, fresh, frozen maybe pellets. make hearty fish available to nano reef people, I feel they are a huge market that is underserved. Easy fish = successful hobbyists that stay in the hobby.

I would not count on your LFS to buy your stock. Most will pay very little or nothing for a few fish from an unknown source. You might be better off shipping directly to hobbyists. Captive stock may not be the best choice for breeding stock. Large Breeders have figured out a way that the fish the become infertile after a few generations. I read an article on it a few years back. I do not know how well it works or not. If I recal it has to do with how they are inbread.
