    My local fish stockist has some of these for sale; I’m looking for gobies, but was looking for Rhinogobius species. Does anyone know anything about these?

    Some more info/description they could be Eugnathogobius tigrellus? Being sold as “Tiger gobies”.

    Hi Hokum it’s currently valid as Pseudogobiopsis tigrellus (Nichols, 1951). There was a revision of the genus by Helen Larson published in RBZ last year which is available here. Very jealous if this is what your LFS has on sale!

    Interesting, but i think these are on the IUCN red list?

    Also are Pseudogobiopsis are brackish usually?

    What water stats are they likely to require?

    Some pictures i took on my phone. Marked up as Stiphodon “Tiger”. I’m certain these are not Stiphodon…

    No clue to be honest – haven’t researched this genus to any great extent. Might be time to do a profile or two…

    I would buy some but I don’t know the needs of the fish, I believe it needs higher temps than my main tank and my smaller tank has fry in it.

    The main tank is a river setup and set to 21C.

    Hmm yeah might be a little cool. What lives in your river tank?
