I have available some Silver-lined mudskippers (Periophthalmus argentilineatus), 5-7cm in length. They were wild collected from Carnarvon and already accept frozen bloodworms and live earthworms.


Although they are hardy, please bear in mind the specialised setup mudskippers require. Mud is absolutely essential, while sand, gravel, bare bottom or others will not suffice. They require humid air and a cover over the tank to maintain this, as well as to prevent escapes. They require a mostly terrestrial setup and will drown in a fully aquatic setup. Tidal simulations are ideal and recommended. This species in particular can be very aggressive to each other, and best kept alone or in a very small group, i.e. 1-2 individuals in a 3ft tank, or perhaps 3-5 in a 5-6ft tank, bear in mind just how much mud you'll need if you want a larger setup.


If you're interested, please show me that you have an appropriate setup ready for them, they weren't easy to get and they're not easy to keep either. I want to be sure they're going to a good home.
