    they're very cool. i would imagine you'd need a very large terrarium for them though.

    I read, on a few sites, that 20 gallons will do...if the water is filtered...and you used a turtle ledge...I wonder if it really would do? For the smaller species at any rate...

    I had 2 of them before.

    They died of septicemia, but the time i had them was great!

    After all my malawis freakishly died ( i checked on them, five minutes later they were all dead with big eyes (not popeye) and open mouths), i got the 2 mudskippers for the 20g hex.

    They liked the floating turtle dock thing

    ...what haven't you had? lol...

    I'm very tempted to give them a go...I could resurrect one of my empty 20g tanks...I'd just need a filter...er, and a ramp...and sand...lights, heater?

    Have 8 0f them in a terrarium and their behavior is funny as hell. My terrarium is a 70 cm aquarium with half a land area made from small pebbles and the rest , about 5 liters of brackish water. Plus a few hollow rocks and decorative boats for them to hide in. Its important to put rocks in the water for them to stand on. I feed them brine shrimp, small fish, frozen blood worms and boiled chicken (finely chopped and without spices. ) They can be trained to take food from your hand but it takes time. Their eyes are on top of their heads and its funny to see two eyes looking out of the water. They like to jump.
