About 6 months and he will get between 22- 24 inchs. he was really small at first. There are alot of gobys hes the only one that ressembles a snake.( i think)

He looks like a mix between an eel and a snake.

What do you feed it?

I feed him frozen blood worms 3 times a day, and there's feeder guppies, and ghost shrimp. it's really cool to watch him eat feeders because he shoots to the top really fast, and scoures the bootom for blood worms.

The Wal-mart where I live sells those kind of fish as Dragonfish. So their called gobys? It says they get pretty big on the label of the fish.
