Alas, they do not live with me now, when I found out I was pregnant with my first child my fish room suddenly had to become a nursary However I found them a good home in Birmingham and kept in touch with the couple that took them and both are doing well still and they have a nice big tank to play in. When I had them the one in the photo was a foot long with his mate at about 8'' I do miss them =(
For planting I have amazon sword and vallis growing pretty well, you could also try wysteria and java fern. If your going to keep gragon gobies go for a nice soft sand with some cavey bits for them... its true you wont see them in there full glory a lot but when you do the're such a great fish to watch
BB gobies are the coolest fish and although they can be territorial towards each other Ive never seen them show any aggression towards other tanks mates. The key is too make sure each has there own space, a little nook/cave where they can make there home not too close to any of the other BBG's in the tank so they got there own patch. Even with each other the aggression ive seen has merely been chasing etc. Those dead coral thingies make good BBG homes and play areas. Ive always kept mine at an SG of around .005 and they've been doing well for a good few years now. They can be picky eaters though and ive read of ppl who have had to resort to live food period, though mine will take frozen easily.

Don't know if he was winding me up though.
Could be some truth in it, weather loach slime up out of water meaning they can survive longer than your normal fish. Ive kept them for years they are a great fish, make sure hes got some hiding places and enjoy =)
