    Hi guys

    Aquired a mini spike fin goby this last Friday.

    They are supposed to be rare so i had 2 specifically order it.

    Only thing was that i never knew the name mini meant...... flippen tiny!!!

    The availability list said the fish's size was medium and i knew that the fish's adult size was small (4cm) but i never expected to need to use a magnifying glass to see it!

    He's absolutely beautiful, however he will have to live in my refugium and not the main display so that i can keep a good eye on him and also to keep him from being harmed by my Vortecs or CL.

    He seems to be eating Cyclopsease that i mixed in SW and inject near him using a suringe, so thats positive.

    Anyone have any extra specific advise on these guys to add please?

    ciao

    If i may ask how much did you pay for it? It looks like a really awesome fish. The exact fish that would look brilliant in my empty nano
