How many Bumblebee Gobies should be kept together?

The goby family, Gobiidae, is one of the largest families of fishes, containing 2,000+ species. The vast majority of these species are marine (saltwater) fish, although a few species can be found in brackish and even freshwater regions. The bumblebee goby, Brachygobius doriae, is a species that frequently appears nowadays in both brackish and freshwater aquaria.

Bumblebee Gobies can be territorial and aggressive towards each other in small numbers, so keeping a moderately large-sized group of 6-8 or more will dilute the behaviour. Smaller groups do not often fare as well, particularly if one individual is singled-out for aggression. It is recommended that Bumblebee goby are kept in groups of 6-8 or more.
