Anyone with experience keeping knight gobies? I have lots of questions

-Can they be kept alone or do they need friends?
-Are they compatable with other fish?
-Appropriate tank size?
-Dietary requirements?


There is water at the bottom of the ocean

I had them in my community tank for a little while and they were awesome. It turned out that they needed bracksih water so i gave them away to a friend. But while i had them i love them! They have such personalities! I had two and they seemed to get along. They loved when i fed them dried shrimp and bloodworms.

They can actually grow quite large--up to 4". This being said, they are peaceful, but very preadatory fish. Small species such as guppies are at risk of being eaten. Per usual for gobioids, they like live, squirming food.

Ive found that they arnt that bad mine isnt agressive at all and eats bloodworms and flakes wont even eat a feeder guppy I have it with some livebearers and they live happily together. though I did see it wrestle down a cricket yesterday which was awesome to see but they are pretty peaceful. they can be kept alone though I had a friend with him but he got a fungus and sadly died. minimum tank size would be a 29.
