What about something like 24 x 24 x 13 Tall?
It's a 32G square Tank

I imagine you can easily create a scape to house two, maybe three (P. novemradiatus)) mudskippers in a tank with a footprint of 24"x24".

Earth. I think we can make a buck on it so let's destroy it.

So, this is totally a newb question, but I would still have to cycle the water portion of the tank right?

Definitely. Preferably with about the salinity you're ending up using for the skippers.

I keep a pair of P. septemradiatus in a 20 long. There was definitely some aggression to start with, however now they are pretty friendly with each other. As has been mentioned by the very knowledgeable HX67, various territories and space are key. I added a land portion with an acrylic sheet, a sloped sand hill, and a few large rocks sticking out of the water. Once everyone had a rock to lord over, aggression went way down. Very important to give adequate space and not overstock. Once I have the space/cash, I'm planning on getting a 40 breeder, and possibly adding a skipper.

These guys are easily the most personable and amusing fish I've kept. At this point they both sit on my hand while I feed them worms. They seem more excited to see me when I get home than my lazy dog! I'd recommend them to anyone

20 gal dirted community, 20 long Vietnamese mudskippers, 40 gal tanganyikan cichlids, 55 gal South American cichlids
3 gal opae ula shrimp cube, 8 gal Fluval Ebi

Aww, that's so cute. Hopefully I will be able to set this tank up soon. My German Rams are now officially a mated pair, so I might give them their own tank.
