    I popped into a shop over in Cunbria yesterday and they had a couple of tanks with some gobies in, now I have kept the peacock and knight gobies before and Eleotris and Hemieliotris species but these are new on me.

    I have a couple of new tanks in the planning stages and thought that these would be nice additions, can anyone offer some id’s before I pop back over to pick some up on Tuesday

    #3

    #4

    #5

    #6

    These would have to go into my rivertank for a couple of weeks until their new tanks are ready.

    Oh dear Lord. *pulls jealous face* First three pics are Rhinogobius species imo (possibly all females). Pic 4 is a Stiphodon female, maybe of the ‘blue moon’ group. 4 (background fish = Tateurndina ocellicauda right?) and 5 no idea. 6 maybe a Lentipes sp. female?

    Penrith Aquatics?

    What sort of mouth does #4 have Mark? Looks like a stiphodon. Lovely!

    Lentipes & sicyopus are a bit fussy to feed in my experience. Unlike stiphodon & sicyopterus. They only take moving, live or frozen type food. No flake or pellets.

    I used to find the odd Rhinogobius in tanks of “hong kong plecs” at the importers place. I used to get the guys to keep an eye out for them and and I’d collect them later.

    Definitely a genus I want to keep more of in the future, great personality in a tank.

    Cheers Matt, no these were in Maidenhead Carlisle.

    Jim – the mouth of #4 is very similar to that of #3

    4 (background fish = Tateurndina ocellicauda right?) – Yes Matt and very nice ones too

    #6 is a Lentipes probably a skinny male either L. armatus or L. multiradiatus.

    #4 looks very special possibly Stiphodon surrufus!!! http://www.seriouslyfish.com/forums/index….0&start=120

    Buy them all.

    Red Stiphodon? Is that? S elegans?

    Colin S. elegans doesn’t look to have been in the trade. The name has been used incorrectly to refer to Stiphodon from all over the Indo-Pacific but it’s actually restricted to French Polynesia and looks like this.

    I am gutted /rolleyes.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:rolleyes:” border=”0″ alt=”rolleyes.gif” /> ) so I am now sat at home without any new gobies and seriously hacked off.

    I am just hoping that they still have some in when I am back over there in a fortnight or so’s time.

    Why not ring and reserve?

    I might give them a ring tomorrow, I have been in a few times now and got to know a couple of the lads. They were all only a couple of quid each so well worth it, not including the lentipes I think there were a mixture of around 12 in total of the Stiphodon and Rhinogobius.

    Is it a possibility that picture 3 and 4 are S. carisa females?

    I don’t think so Henri – no dark markings in the dorsal fins.
