    They are supposedly a pair, mostly in hiding.
    I just want to know tank size & feeding requirements

    It's a goby. Cryptocentrus cyanotaenia. Quite a scarce species. Just be sure you have a lid on your tank.

    Thank you.
    Went to read up a bit now.. So easy if you know what you are looking for :)
    Commonly known as a lagoon shrimp (apparently)
    There is not a lot of info on them, other than that they co-habit with shrimp. Found one site that mentioned a meaty diet and preferred feeding twice daily.
