Personal observations, Advice:

These are some very interesting fish. Altho they only grow to about 8" long whey can reach a foot or more in height. As alot of brackish fish they are sold as FW and at a small size they can tollerate that but as they grow they have an increasing need for salinity. They are best kept in groups of 3 or more as they need to be with their own kind, but often develope a pecking order amongst themselves. They can be a finiky fish to feed and prefer frozen foods to dried ones. They also need clean water and a fair amount of current to the tank.
