80g BW, dragon goby

So here's a few shots of our large dragon goby Ryuu playing with his marimo ball in our 80g BW tank. One of his favorite things to do is dig out against the front glass so his marimo ball falls in then he plays with it. (pictures taken before I did the tank cleaning)

He looks good. I miss my "dragon's lair" but I don't miss mixing salt in with water changes.

How big is he?

He's about 6 inches and still growing. Eats like a pig! Our other one hasn't grown for crap though. Kinda worried. Eats like a pig too, just no growth.


I got the salt thing down now. I found early on I didn't have to add it all the time because of that "tidal flow" thing. I think we talked about that before. I now do it once a month unless I do a major WC.

Ha!

Yeah, these guys creeped me out too but something about them made me fall for 'em. *lol* The big one, that's the one pictured, has so much personality. The little one rarely comes out.
