Please welcome Tatsu

Tatsu is our new Prehistoric Dragon goby that now resides in our 80g brackish. He is a bit camera shy, preferring to curl up with his marimo ball.
His name is the generic term for Japanese dragons.

Wow, really cool. If i were you i would make a cave in the back or something in the back. These dragon gobies are hiders, the need a dark cave to have shelter in. So i would make a small cave behind the dragons or something. Because if he is curling around the balls it sounds like he is looking for a place to hide and trying to get rid of the light. JMO.

Awesome fish though.

He's already made himself a cave under the dragon bubblers! lol
He dug a cave out under one of the zebra rocks, which made the rock fall in some, which made me nervous. I filled it back in and he made his new one under his newest best friend, another dragon But I am working on an idea for a cave in the front where I won't get nervous with him digging.

Any picks of him in his cave? Also you might want consider taking the dragons out and balancing them on a pair of slate rocks and leave a little tunnel are for him to dig under so he does not topple the dragon on top of himself.

Lol, a dragon digging under a dragon.

I only have a few pieces of black slate and they're small. They
re left over from doing our 40. Making small caves for the rams. I think the biggest piece is around 3 inches. I was thinking about maybe some egg crate stuff.
