thought i would have a go at something a bit different, and with the gobies being a hot topic at the moment, i couldn't resist these, anyone know what they are?
sorry about pics, taken on my mobile.

i picked up 8, some smaller and less colourful, perhaps at least one is a female. i may get a few more to increase my odds of both sexes.
thanks for the link Matt, very interesting reading. i'll have to arrange the tank a bit more to their liking.

They should be pretty easy to sex. I have seen one very small fish in the shop, just a bit over an inch, that I wasn't sure about. Most are pretty distinct.
I think they'd appreciate a finer substrate, they really like to burrow.

Have you read through this thread Keith?
