Been a while... This time I used my camera and then uploaded them to my phone! Hopefully these are better... But there were also a TON of deleted photos 😂. (All of these ar ephotos of my female gudgeon, Betsy.)

Some sources say they reach 3in and others say 1in or 1 and a half inches... Its all in genetics really I suppose. Mine are only an inch long and they are sexually mature which means that they are fully grown as well. Even if the ones I got did reach 3 inches, they actually could still live in my tank because they dont swim fast everywhere. (Although they do explore every single nook and cranny of the tank). These fish do really well in trios or groups of four (sometimes pairs like mine). I would say a 10g is an absolute minimum depending on how big they are. If they are 2 and a half to 3in, definitely a 20g would be best for a pair or trio...
Wait , what ? Nano fish ? I thought they were fairly big. I guess I know even less about them than I thought.

Interesting. What else ? Give with the info 'cuz my really old book doesn't even mention them. They almost sound like a Goby.
