Gobioides broussonettii (Dragon Goby)

A large, eel-like goby with tiny eyes but a huge mouth. The dorsal fin is very long, giving the appearance of a Chinese dragon, hence the name.

Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

Despite appearances, these fish are not predatory and actually prefer benthic invertebrates. They will eat bloodworms and tubifex readily, but algae wafers and catfish pellets can be used as well. Many specimens like to eat live brine shrimps, which they catch while swimming clumsily at the surface of the tank.

Dragon gobies are territorial, but provided each fish has a cave to call home, they will coexist willingly enough. Lengths of PVC tube make ideal caves.

These fish must be kept in tanks with a soft substrate as they like to be able to dig. They will burrow into the substrate to hunt for food as well as when resting.

While a difficult fish to keep well, these are fun animals with much to entertain the advanced aquarist or dedicated beginner.
