I think two species, maybe a Glossogobius sp. (pics 1 and 2) and a Redigobius sp. (pic 3)?

Cake or death?

I think I'm wrong about the first fish but not sure it's R. giurinus either - if it is it'd be a first record for Malaysia. Here's a specimen from Japan:

Sorry to raise an old thread but i'm interested in Rhinogobius sp and the body structure of this is very similar to R. candidianus, as a large number of these haven't been formally recognised it could be an undescribed species.

However i'd be interested in the water conditions? Temp, pH and Hardness?
