Try getting about six to eight of them. when they pair(depending on size of tank) they should pair off on their own. use alot of rock cover in your tank. Lava rock works best. I have the blue spotted gobies in tank with my tropheus illanghi are doing great. I have two pairs breeding for me all the time!!!!! I have an 120 gallon tank. These are very fun and comical fish indeed!!!!!! Big tank, no problems!!!!

I bough an unmated pair of w/c's a few years ago that paired up almost imediately. The male died after about two months (no idea why) so I bought another male and he paired up with the female straight away.

I bought two w/c's Gobies that paired up after about a month. I have had them for about 1.5 years and they have produced a ton of fry.

I have also heard many stories of folks starting with groups of six or more and not getting a pair out of it. :roll:

As with most issues, it really depends on the fish you end up with. The best chance of success is to start with 5 or more in at least a 40 gallon tank.
