    I have a pair of fire gobies and the one has gone into hiding for the last couple of days.
    I actually thought it had died.
    I still haven't found the exact hiding spot.
    Should I get my hopes up?
    I can't find much on breeding them.

    Rossco, I have no experience with breeding gobies, but I would have to assume that hiding alone, is not enough to assume they are breeding.

    Perhaps searching by their scientific name, "Nemateleotris magnifica" will bring up more internet results. MOFIB, www.marinebreeder.org is another place I suggest looking for information.

    Fire gobies are known to dissapear and re-apear in almost any length of time. Like anenome said I wouldn't get my hopes up due to that it's a small and shy fish being able to squize into almost any whole.

    Oops

    No luck
    It looks more like the one is bulling the other.
    Maybe they are both males.
    I,m used to Malawian Cichlids.
