i got this fish out of pity. It's hard to tell in pic but he's half starved to death. I knew he would prob die but I wanted to give him a cjance anyway. He cost 60 canadian. These fish are caught live and alot never adapt. They eat pods andwith luck can be taught to eat roe (fish eggs for sushi) and i've heard bloodworms. This fellow did eventually die but my husband told the fishstore owner that he shouldnt have them and that they do not eat flake food like he said they did. So hopefully he doesn't get anymore because he would prob sell them to anyone

Well there are a lot of gobies and blennies that will starve to death in an in home aquarium because of insufficient food. They eat live food, and whether they ate it all or there wasnt any to begin with they will die.
