    Re: mudskippers

    Try taking a front tank shot level with the tank or maybe at a lower angle.

    Anyway, what is the top net for? Prevent leaves from dropping in? Is your tank located outdoors?

    Re: mudskippers

    Those dwarf mudskippers are so cute! Think they could live in a normal fish tank with many big frogbits? Would they drown?

    mudskippers are Fish. they won't drown they survive on land by keeping air in their gill chambers

    Re: mudskippers

    Hah of course!

    But I also heard they like to spend most of their time out of the water. Does that mean they would be stressed without land?

    Re: mudskippers

    haha of course yes in the ideal world all aquarists should strive to replicate as similar habitat with the animals natural surroundings. that's why this bro kennethc has made sand "dunes" and rocks for them to come up to surface for eg., in the wild, males and females defend their own burrows fiercely.

    Re: mudskippers

    Yeah man when I get my own place the first thing I will do is make a huge paludarium for my macs and mudskippers. Maybe humming birds too.

    But for now I just have a 2 footer for fish with lotsa frogbits. I will give it a try. Cannot contain my itch any further. C328 sells right? Somebody stop me if you think they will die!

    Re: mudskippers

    Bro not a good idea.deepwater will be inconvenient for the mudskippers to climb out.and frog bits aren't so natural. Shallow water with some sand would be better
