New here, interested in mudskippers

Hey, my name is Brett. I'm 14 years old, and I love animals. I'm interested in getting a mudskipper or a few of them. Can anyone give me some good care details? What kind should I get? What kind of substrate, filtration, food, and temperatures do they need? I'd appreciate the help, and thanks in advance!

mudskippers.org introduction to mudskippers, mudskipper behavior, how to raise mudskippers, where to buy mudskippers
All About Mudskippers--A Walking Fish

Looks like you need to know the exact species you're going for to get a better idea of the tank parameters.

Even though mudskippers are only partially aquaitc, make sure you cycle the water portion of his environement before you put him in. See the article link in my signature.

Welcome to AA!

Mudskippers are very cool critters, but they do require very specialized conditions and aren't a fish that I'd recommend to someone new to fishkeeping. The linked article is a good jump off point for more research into them.

The species I want is P. novemradiatus. Can you give me some specific info for that species? Thanks for the links!

The best single link for that fish is, in my opinion Dwarf Indian Mudskipper (Periophthalmus novemradiatus) - Seriously Fish

Ironically, it's the first link when P. novemradiatus is googled.
