I recently read an article in PFk about mudskippers, and found it very interesting. It is something I am toying with the idea of getting into. PFK recommend a species to keep in the home aquaria (as yet forget the name).
Anyone else had any experience of keeping these fish? Planning on researching as much as I can before I put the idea forward to the wife
I have seen the a couple of sites briefly, was kind of after speaking to someone who has close contact. I think I may well do some indepth research over time and if I manage to pursuade the wife and get the finances, undertake a new project and publish the setting up on here
i've looked after some for a few months and they are dead easy tbh, i'd not use coral sand though, aquarium sand is good, black aquarium sand looks even better though
you'd be best siliconing in some bits of glass to raise one end so that you dont have to have a really thick layer of sand that can and would go bad (anaerobic) look into aquariums designed for newts for ideas on that front www.caudata.org is good for ideas on that sort of thing, you'd want one using 2 bits of glass, a cover bit and one that slopes up front the bottom at about a 30 degree angle or less to allow you to build up the sand
There are no experts, mearly beginners who know more than others.
