    Honestly, you should have researched before you bought it. But anyway . . .

    How big is your tank?

    Dragon fish (aka violet gobies) are brackish so you need to be adding some salt to the tank. They can get almost 2 feet long so it's going to need a pretty good sized tank (around 40 - 50 gallons minimum). Also, they are NOT predatory and generally will not eat fish. They mostly eat plankton and small insects like blood worms, brine shrimp, and daphnia and other left over foods on the bottom of the tank.
