**nod** I don't plan on giving him to someone who'll end up just killing him off. Thanks for that forum though! That should be useful ^-^

So today I sent Bunny to his new home. She came and got him and was excited. She seems to know her stuff and such andwas really excited to get him. ^_^ I'm glad he'll be in a new, loving home with the proper care and attention that he needs. :) Aside from that I've lost my marbles in the fish tank, so to speak.

A little tip for getting a hydrometer for brackish use... Order one from a homebrewing site. They will measure gravity on a lower scale. Also, I disagree with some on the salt to be used. I'm using evaporated sea salt in my tank not marine salt specifically and my dragon goby is healthy and growing. I let him do his sifting but I do buy him ghost shrimp to eat. I normally steer new keepers away from these but one guy who was setting up a brand new tank insisted on buying one and a few months later he tells me that it is still living and eats bits of porkchop. Keep in mind that this is a wild fish, they do not breed in captivity so their nature can be a little funny. Also they are picky eaters.

This thread is months old, but I just died a little more inside knowing that someone, somewhere out there, is feeding a dragon goby porkchops.

Yea I saw the age but I thought it would be a good opportunity to post about it rather than start a new dragon goby thread. But yea... I would never put pork in my tank. If this guy is having success with it then more power to him, but I will not be trying it. I do however hope my hydrometer tip helps... I figured a hydrometer was a hydrometer but apparently some have different scales based on their purpose? Yea a brewing hydrometer seems good for testing brackish water then since you are looking for a AG/SG of 1.005?
