    Default Mudskipper!

    When I dormed in college, I bought a mudskipper and setup a brackish water tank for my dorm living room. We had sharks, scats, archers, and some chromides... and of course the mudskipper. He was one of the coolest pets I've ever had. He would eat turkey, crickets, ham, pizza... pretty much anything from my hands. When I brought him home on winter break, something must have freaked him out and he threw off the tank lid and landed on my floor, drying up... we were all so devastated.

    I haven't been able to find more skippers until yesterday! I walked into my local fish stores and they had skippers! So I bought one Meet skipper Jr.

    Nice! I didn't know you could have these guys for a pet! I love seeing videos of them in the wild though. Funny little critters!
