That's a great looking fish. I've never seen one of those before. It looks like it was colored with a Hi-Lighter.

I have no idea what they eat. But just give it a day or two to settle in to its new home and see what it will eat.

sweet fish....Planning on breeding?
Anyways ya, most fish wont eat for about 3 days of moving to a new tank. Some will....some won't....so don't worry if the fish has been in there for less than three days...Also the fish can prolly live for a month or so with out food...So test different foods and READ UP ON THE FISH BEFORE YOU GET THEM NEXT TIME!

It'll only reach about 2 inches maximum and can eat just about anything, high quality flake foods should work well. Water temperature is somewhere around mid 70s (like 74-78 I heard) and I've seen them called Peacock Gobies at the lfs.

Very cool pickup

EDIT: Seen a site just now that said they won't take dried foods, if that's the case, try brine shrimp

Hard to get cheap...

Sounds like you've figured out how to get fish that are colorful, interesting, and able to stay small for life! Most of us (definitely myself included) aren't too good at that!

I have 4 peacock gudgeons in a 10g. I feed them regular old Tetramin flake food. They seem to enjoy it as they come out during feeding time and beg at the front of the glass. I've also fed them blackworms and they seemed to like them too
