Wow!

Always thought these were so cool. He's scary big lol! He looks like a prehistoric (sea) monster.

That is a great pic of him coming out of the rocks!

I had one long ago but it died, then I found out more about them and decided I had better not get another one too big for my community fish tank.

Never could upload my video but if u go to YouTube and search "55 gal brackish dragon tank" it should be the first result. ..if not my username is 05mjdodson. ... update I have added 6 bumble gobies and 1 f8 puffer....everybody seems to get along just fine...the f8 doesnt attempt to mess with dragon so that worked out perfect!!

Hey just found your thread. Awesome dragon. Mine is about 1/2 to 1/3 that size, had him almost a year now. He lives in a 55 brackish tank with some mollies, 3 chromides, and an F8 puffer. All get along great! What do you feed yours? Anything special? I have read they are scrounges, but I still toss in some shrimp pellets and algae wafers. The whole tank gets a mix of flakes, chiclid pellets, frozen mussels and blood worms, dried blood worms, and I toss a few small snails in every few days for the puffer, I also have a few MTS as cleaners.

Thanks!! Yeah I fed mine nothing but algae discs, shrimp pellets and flake food for the first 3 years before realizing one of his favorites are brine shrimp. I just buy the frozen cubes....ive recently discovered he will also eat the frozen bloodworm cubes that I got for my puffer. How aggressive are the orange chromides. ..I wanted to try them but was unsure of how they would get along with dragon an f8 puffer, 7 celebes rainbowfish and 4 guppies....

They actually only pester each other! I got them to help keep my mollie population under control, to eat the baby fry if they can catch them. I think I have one tiny fry running around but it's hard to find. They leave everyone else alone. My puffer will even hang out with them. The chromides will hang out with anyone so far. The research I found was that they were pretty peaceful but would eat smaller fish (especially fry) and they don't get very large.

Here are some pics

In the second would be the F8 and two Columbian catfish (aka black fin shark catfish).
