I have two in my 55, which is only slightly brackish (1.001-1.002 sg). The are doing great, and have grown at least an inch in length since I put them in there several months ago. Nitrates in my tank are usually really low, 10ppm or so. They seem to enjoy shrimp pellets, I use Top Fin and have heard they enjoy Wardley's as well. They seem to be pretty blind, so I feed them with a tube to make sure the pellets land right next to them, and to give them some time before everything else in the tank goes after the food. Make sure you give them plenty of hiding places, as they are territorial. I have a length of 4" pvc and four 5-8" pieces of slate resting against the glass to make caves for them. Put at least one more hiding spot than you have gobies, and they should be happy. They're neat fish, and fun to watch.
