Husbandry

Trimma meranyx Winterbotton, Erdmann & Dita Cahyani, 2014
Day-night pygmy goby

The following Infos are from Fishbase. For more Infos click to the Link th Fishbase.
Most specimens of this 'twilight zone' species are reported from the 70 m depth range (though have been collected as shallow as 45-55 m in the Lembeh Strait). The species do not appear to school or aggregate as with many congeners, but rather are found individually in small caves and crevices, frequently quite deep into the interstices of the reef and only visible using a strong underwater flashlight.
