Hi Paul. I am looking for a specific gudgeon, as one of my died and the other is quite lonely. Have you seen any or do you think you could find one? The scientific name is Ptereleotris microlepis. Here are some links to good pictures:

Note the brown edging to the dorsal fin and more yellowish tail fins. I found them originally at Animart, but they can't seem to get their supplier to get any more of these ones in. Let me know what you think. Thanks much.

Hi Jocelyn,
Those are available quite often from our distributors and have seen them commonly called "green dart gobies" or "moon dart goby". I believe the scientific name to be Ptereleotris microlepis. They generally cost around $20-30/each. If you P.M. me your full name and phone #, I can put your info in our special order box and contact you when we get some in.
Thanks for your interest!

Dave,
That's a really red antennata lion. He looks good, but he'll definitely need live ghost shrimp to get his feeding response going. He should be ready hopefully by tuesday or so.
Thank You!

Paul,

Has the antennata began eating yet? Also, is there anything special i should setup to keep ghost shrimp on hand? I've never had to deal with live food before. Any advise would be great.

Thanks

Dave

Hi Dave,
The Antennata Lion is eating ghost shrimp. The nice thing w/ghost shrimp is that they survive in a saltwater aquarium for a pretty long time (sometimes a week or longer). The only other concern is other fish in your tank competing w/the lion for food. Be prepared to buy ghost shrimp about once a week for about two months. Over that two month period you should be offering frozen krill/silversides/etc. to the lion in an attempt to wean the it onto frozen food (much cheaper/easier).
Hope this helps.
Thanks
