Liveaquaria says they need at least a 90 gallon tank. They will eat smaller tankmates and can reach one foot in length. I don't own one personally but they seem to be hardy.

Petsmart says they only need a 55 gallon but the ones sold there are small. They for sure will eat smaller tankmates. Petsmart also claims that they grow up to 18"

I had a Dinosaur Goby / dragon fish that was about a foot long, loved that guy.

I've always seen them referred to as dragon fish or goby?

Dragon goby is the term used for violet gobies

They're referred to dragon fish or violet gobies.

They do get at least a foot I know that. They eat fish if you get too close with the mouth size

They grow to be around a foot long and arent too active. They are great fish and yes they love to swim around when the lights are off

Dragon gobies are actually filter feeders
