Possibly the most elongated goby, it can reach up to 25" in length with a flattened head, beady eyes and elongated dorsal fin running two-thirds of its body length. The body is steel gray with large iridescent scales, with darker highlights along the dorsal ridge and central lateral line. The Dragon will perch on rocks or even burrow into a sandy substrate. It should be provided with lots of plant and rock hiding places. It will do well with multiple members of its family, but should be housed with only docile tankmates. If the Dragon Goby is kept in too small of a space, it will fight with its family members. Eating small insects in the wild, it should be offered meaty foods, bloodworms, tubifex worms and frozen brine shrimp. It may eat sinking carnivore foods and will relish small live worms.
