The Jade Sleeper Goby has a wide area of distribution and inhabits a variety of habitats from freshwater channels, marshes, muddy ponds, rivers, and streams, along with brackish mangrove forests. It is valued both as a source of food and an addition to the freshwater aquarium. This species is native to South America and it can grow to a whopping 2 feet long. Because this fish is so large it requires a very large tank – about 200 gallons or more. It also is a very territorial and predatory fish, so you should keep it in a tank all by itself to prevent it from eating its tank mates. When it comes to water chemistry, this species is very adaptable – it can be kept in either freshwater or brackish conditions. The diet for this species should consist of meaty foods like earthworms, shrimp, fish, and carnivore pellets.
