The Blue Gudgeon Dartfish, commonly known as the Blacktail Goby or Blacktail Dartfish is a native of the coral reefs of Fiji. They sport an elongated body that is light blue or green in appearance, with a noticeable streak of black on the back. They love being together and make excellent fish to have in fish only or reef aquariums.
