How to Care for a Violet Goby (Dragonfish) | PetHelpful
The fish is omnivorous and thrives on a high-protein diet in captivity. Feed your pet dragon fish algae wafers, live brine shrimp, mysis shrimp and daphnia.
It’s a weird and strange creature maybe even scary and ulgy to people, not me Its beautiful,special,unique,valueable!! I wish I had a pet black dragonfish,so don’t critize animals or creatures just because the are different or not cute or adorable physical appeal!! Its not the looks that always counts it the way it lives and part it plays in life!!If you critize animals or creatures your animal-rascist!!
I believe the fish you are talking about the"dragon fish" is the given name from pet co for the BICHIR. i have 2 of these, one i got from pet co, the other i got from a specialty fish store,and this one is the ornate bichir, they are great so far but they are still small , i believe these can get up too 2 feet big, and they are carnivores!!! all my other fish are bigger than them ( or too prickly to eat ) but i have found that they attack frozen beefheart like it was their last meal... there is one other of these that i have seen and it is the albino.

If you see Dragon Gobies for sale in a pet shop they will almost always claim they are very aggressive and not to be trusted with other fish, this is wrong.Remember, Dragonfish are beautiful living creatures. It is theresponsibility of the pet owner to care for their pet and provide ahealthy environment. So give your Dragonfish space, clean, warm,brackish water, plenty of hiding places, and high-quality, highlyvaried foods and he should be a good companion for a long time.Dragonfish are typically very timid fish, so providing them withplenty of will definitely improve their health and boost their appetite. Alsokeep in mind that Dragonfish are very fickle about feeding -especially just after transport and shipping.To avoid poor water quality, do partial water changes once a week. Siphon off 10 percent to 15 percent of the water and add fresh water to the tank. Clean the filter each time you do partial water changes. Make sure that the tank has ample plants and caves for the fish to hide. Use plastic plants, as the brackish water in the fish tank will not sustain most living plants. Keep the water temperature around 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Do not allow the water temperature to fluctuate, as it could cause appetite loss and a weakened immune system. Maintain the pH between 6.5 and 8.5. If you are keeping multiple dragon fish, allow 25 gallons of space for each fish. For one fish, keep a 50-gallon tank which is a minimum of 4 feet in length. In big tanks, install multiple filters to clean the water, as one filter may not suffice.
