Exclamation Blue Dart Fish

Does any one out there have Blue Dart Fish! I wanted to pick up a pair and was wondering if anyone had any experience they could share. I was trying to do research but am left with limited results.

No luck with 'Blue Dart Fish' Any chance of a scientific name?

About the best link I can do (the fish is something like a firefish right?)

Ptereleotris heteropterus is the scientific name i believe, It is in the same family as the firefish

I would say as long they eat from the LFS you're probably good to go. Have a tight fitting lid and semi-peaceful tankmates. Same rules as any firefish, maybe a tad larger min. tank. I know firefish sometimes don't work out as pairs, another thing to keep an eye on.

I don't have any dartfish experience, but skunks (lost one to jumping, was paired with a cinnamon clown if you can believe it) are probably the most passive of clowns so they should get along fine. Make sure they're eating first before you add them (at the LFS or in QT).

I have a pair of blue gudgeons or filamented blue gobies, Ptereleotris hanae, which are closely related and very similar. These are very hardy, they pair or group readily and they really like a piece of flat live rock on the sand bed to burrow under. I rarely see mine except at dinner time and at night when they come out and sit on the sand next to their burrow. Mine are passive and shy and are in a 180 with several tankmates including a pair of true perc clowns. They share their burrow with a pair of coral banded shrimp and a yellow watchman goby.
