I ended up with 2 dragon gobys...I didn't buy them..They were given to me .The poor little guys were bright fire engine red with burns and the one is missing a lot of his back fin..I had no idea what they were when I seen them.
But I did a bit of research and found out they prefer brackish water....They were previously kept in freshwater so I haven't put them into brackish yet..I will do it really slowly eventually...I didn't want to shock them because they're already pretty ill... I have them both in my 10 gallon QT. right now...I know that's really tiny for them...they're only 4 1/2 inches right now...but I know they get huge..So once they're better I may get a 55 gallon...Or rehome them to a good home...I would like to have a 55 gallon brackish tank though...
I have read they don't do well in pairs when they get older though..So if I do decide to set up a 55 gallon it looks like I will have to re-home the one at least...
..I posted over on the "ancient fish" side of the website but I didn't get any response yet.
