Remarks: Empire Gudgeons (Hypseleotris compressa) are a medium-sized goby type fish from Australia. They are larger than their close relative Peacock Gudgeons, reaching up to 4" in captivity. Males exhibit bright red-pink fins with black and white trim.
These fish are not fussy with regard to water parameters. They prefer clean water and a dimly lit tank with lots of cover. The more cover present, the more comfortable the fish feels, and they will venture out to the middle of the tank if they feel safe. Their bright colors and easy breeding make them a great alternative to more traditional dwarf cichlids as a low-lying centerpiece in a community tank.
