    my kids have me intrigued by these exoctic looking fish. i would consider switching to brackish if i knew what i could fit in there responsibly. i have seen where these gobies get to be around 8in, but dont look very big bodied.
    would a 45gal be big enough for him and a couple of puffers (maybe 2 or 3)? how messy are these fish?
    what does a dragon goby eat? i have heard they are filter feeders, is this true?
    If I say something stupid, please give me moment. I will pro'lly top myself.

    I dont know anything about dragon gobies except i want one lol. but i do know that puffers should only be kept alone or with other puffers. they have big teeth and will attack other fish.

    i guess the brack tank is a no go then. cause i do want a little variety in what is pro'lly gonna be my final tank. if i can only have puffers, (and if i go brack i will) then i wont do it.
    If I say something stupid, please give me moment. I will pro'lly top myself.

    I keep my fig 8 with 5 bumblebee gobys and a knight goby.If the puffer tank mates have a speed advantage they will be fine.BTW,its not hard to get a speed advantage over a puffer.I have hardly had them long enough to be well learned but from what I have found is this,keep them well fed and they pose very little threat to tankmates.I do know they do not normally do well with other puffers and that proved out well in my tank.

    brackish selection in my area isnt great. in fact about all i can choose from are: dragon gobies, fig 8, and GSP's. i have seen mollies of course but have heard they arent truely brackish.
    If I say something stupid, please give me moment. I will pro'lly top myself.
