Gobies come in a multitude of colours and most are relatively small. They require sand and rocks and make an interesting addition to the marine aquarium.

Blennies are a bottom dwelling species found on or close to sand and rocks. They are real characters. It is best to keep only one species of Blenny per tank as they will defend their territory from other Blennies. Average maximum size is 7-10cm.

Dragonets are firm favourites amongst aquarists. These slow moving beautiful fish make interesting additions to the aquarium. They will accept frozen food but should be offered live brine shrimp. Ideal conditions are a matured tank with self sustaining populations of crustaceans such as copepods and amphipods.
