    Hi all, before i start id like to admit i know absolutely nothing about Gobies.. Ive never kept them or even read much about them. Im completely clueless.

    I recently brought in several boxes of fish from columbia and for me the contaminants are the most interesting part of this proceedure.. I usually get a handful of nice tetras plus several small cichlids or catfish.. This time round i got a little oddity which i dont have the first clue what it could be. Two bags of fish went into the same tank and if could of come in with either, the first bag was Dicrossus filamentosus and the second Nannostomus minimus.

    Hes a cute little fella..He’s tiny so ID is most likely impossible but i thought id share the pic anyway..

    Very cool! Looks like a Microphilypnus species of which two, M. amazonicus and M. ternetzi, are native to Colombia. Have a look here.

    P.S. It’s an eleotrid, not a goby.

    Cheers Matt, its a interesting little fish.
