My local fish stockist has some of these for sale; I'm looking for gobies, but was looking for Rhinogobius species. Does anyone know anything about these?

Some more info/description they could be Eugnathogobius tigrellus? Being sold as "Tiger gobies".

Hi Hokum it's currently valid as Pseudogobiopsis tigrellus (Nichols, 1951). There was a revision of the genus by Helen Larson published in RBZ last year which is available here. Very jealous if this is what your LFS has on sale!

Agreed. That is a lovely looking fish.

Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.

Interesting, but i think these are on the IUCN red list?

http://www.iucnredlist.org/app.....ils/9300/0

Also are Pseudogobiopsis are brackish usually?

What water stats are they likely to require?

Nope freshwater, at least as adults. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> No idea on water parameters but the revision says P. tigrellus was collected from rainforest streams so the water should at least have a relatively low mineral content.

The fact it's rare is what made me write "if" your LFS has this species. Have you seen the fish on sale?

I'm going to have a look this afternoon. I know most freshwater gobies so i should be able to put it into a rough group. I'll take my camera too to get some snaps and post them up.

No clue to be honest - haven't researched this genus to any great extent. Might be time to do a profile or two...

I would buy some but I don't know the needs of the fish, I believe it needs higher temps than my main tank and my smaller tank has fry in it.

The main tank is a river setup and set to 21C.

Nice combo. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> You might get away with adding some of those gobies without detriment to your other fishes if you stick the temperature up a °C or two...
