A few weeks ago I decided to give the two Schismatogobius sp. company and bought a few more.

In the shop they were very pale but one of them seems to be a bit different and bigger.

 

I have searched everywhere, but I still don't have a clue what it might be.

I've tried to make some decent pictures but the goby isn't very helpfull.

Most of the time it's lurking between the stones.

The best shot I could make is still very bad, but maybe there's someone familiar with this goby (I'm not even sure it belongs to Gobiidae).

Edit: Most probably it's from Indonesia.

Hi Jim,

How are you doing?

 

Yes, probably it's a goby, but I've also checked some members of the Eleotridae.

 

Another picture.

Very pretty :-) But I don't know, what species it is. I'm shure, it's not an Eleotridae, but a Gobiidae. Looks a little like a Redigobius. But it could also be a Schismatogobius.

Very nice find Henri - does it change colour and patterning much?

Also, how many branched caudal-fin rays does it have?

Cake or death?

maybe Belobranchus sp

look my Belobranchus belobranchus : http://freshwater-gobies.actif.....ranchus#55

If the pelvic fins are glued together, it is a goby.

If they are separated, it is a "Sleeper fish" as the Belobranchus.

Hi Matt, I haven't noticed any sudden colour changes yet.

I haven't seen the caudal fin much; most of the time only his head.

 

Hi tyrano,

 

Last week I did see Belobranchus belobranchus in Odyssey's thread at LOL.

That's the reason I searched also in Eleotridae.

I think B. belobranchus is very close, but I hope it's something else.(It gets too big and probably too ferocious)

It looks to have fused pelvic fins on that last photo Henri?

I think it might be a Schismatogobius.

You wary of him because he is a killer in one year he killed my male "Mugilogobius latiftrons" and massacred a Mogurnda that was bigger than him.

I had a problem in sulawesi aquarium and I put the latifrons with Belobranchus,the time I prepare another aquarium for the latifrons either alone, all day I watched their behavior and it was really the impression that both are accepted.

Usually the Belobranchus attack very quickly the fish, if that was the case I would have found another temporary solution.

As all going very well, I wanted to wait a day for than aquarium whether operational, an security ...

But the next morning, I found the body of latifrons with all fins torn he's dead ....

The Belobranchus not support the presence of other fish;

Now I keep this fish alone in a 54 liters
I think it is a female that I have, I hope one day to have a male but I'm afraid that the fish can not bear to stay in couple.

It's hard to see from that angle.

But I have another picture; To me it looks to be separated.

I have found a very similar looking guy (definitely a eleotrid) in the Philippines. Is there any news on the taxonomy of this species?Belosp2.jpgImage Enlarger

Hi Birgit,

 

I still don't know what they are, maybe somebody else has some ideas?

I've got two of them; The one in my pictures has grown to 7- 8 cm SL, the other one (less colourful, but with the same markings) is half that size.

A Cottus sp. ?

Round here we have Cottus gobio. A nice little predator.
