Peacock Gudgeon care

    Hi,
    I'm thinking about maybe peacock gudgeons for a 20+ gallon tank. Any information on care and housing? Also community fish and if so shrimp they get along with or form symbiotic relationships with? I saltwater pistol shrimp form symbiotic relationships with gobies, but these are gudgeons...

    Thanks

    They do much better with a lot of plants as they are shy. The more places they have to hide, the more likely they will come out to be seen. They will be fine with shrimp, unless the shrimp are small enough to fit in their mouth. I wouldn't expect to see the symbiotic relationships that saltwater critters form, though.

    They need to be with other peaceful fish.

    They are beautiful, graceful little creatures.

    Any certain PH requirements or temperature? I would have the tank very planted.
