The Museum

The Freshwater Goby can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:

"These short and stocky river-dwelling fish have a lot of slender teeth for tearing apart other fish. Freshwater gobies dig holes under rocks in riverbeds to make nests for eggs, which the males guard. Other fish breeds take advantage of this protective quality and often lay eggs in goby nests."


Upon catching the fish, the player will say the following:

"I caught a freshwater goby! You fresh, goby!"
