    It doesn’t look like a stiphodon to me Charles, mouth is wrong? Maybe lentipes????? How long is it? Very nice whatever it is!

    I see they’re advertised here with the same name.

    Hi Charles, just had a look through an old book and there is a similar looking Goby Schismatogobius Bruynisi ? probably way off the mark ?

    Jim I think the fish in the link you posted is a Redigobius sp.?

    Very nice find Charles and kudos on the id Henri, certainly looks like it!

    thanks for the input.
    stiphodon is far when it comes to the bodyshape. too short. about 5 cm for the largest male.
    pseudogobiopsis oligactis: not so shure about the species. the pics are on the way to specialists who should know this genus – both cited in the description. thanks a lot for the hint. under remarks: Roberts … a description of an undescribed species which would fit perfectly for me.
    schismatogobius seems unlikely when I look at some pics.
    Jim you are right: the only really similar pic is on that site.
    you think it could be redigobius, Matt? couldn’t find a match

    I couldn’t tell much from the pic on thatpetplace, but to have the same unusual common name leads me to think they may come from the same supplier. Even if they do, they might be different. I just ordered 2 female “rainbow”sp. and got one semoni and one “orange fin”

    Charles I don’t think your fish is Redigobius, Henri’s Pseudogobiopsis guess is correct imo. The specimen in the pic Jim linked to looks like something different though? Maybe suppliers using the same name for different species? Or not??

    Jim good point about the head shape. I assumed it to be related with sexual maturity as in some loaches?

    I looked through Kottelats Fishes of Western Indonesia and Sulawesi and all the Gobies mentioned here are in the book and all look similar ,however the S. bruynisi has that black mark on its lower lip ,it must be said though that the fish under Redigobius look shorter in the body !

    The Pseudogobiopis Oligactis is represented with a drawing , as is P.neglectus which i m o looks closer ?

    after this shot

    I had a dejà vu:
    http://www.petfrd.com/forum/showthread.php…ghlight=acker71
    a thread back in 2007. it’s the same species?! I’ll ask acker71/thomas.
    last post stated that’s p. oligactis, confirmed by H. Larson.
    but that nose!!!

    Dr. Larson’s reply:

    QUOTE
    your fish is an undescribed (as far as I can tell) species of Pseudogobiopsis – several German aquarists have sent me photos of this fish. I have never seen specimens.
    all the best
