    At a guess I would say possibly a Sicyopterus species, maybe jongkasi Red

    I’ve got the same fish and I initially thought s. jonklassi, but I posted a pic at the yahoogobygroup and the reply that i got from Ron(possibly Ron watson) was sicyopus exallisquamulus-see link,page 8 I believe. http://forums.loaches.com/viewtopic.php?t=…6&start=105
    Lovely fish! Quite different than I expected. I really like the algae eating gobies, stiphodon&sicyopterus, that I have with them. These are carnivores and are always looking for food! Mine show no interest in dry foods, only bloodworms and brineshrimp and they musty be moving. They also Love small garden worms!! I bought three and had to separate them as the dominant one was starving the 2 others.

    Mine seem to change their degree of red shown, no specific reason that I’ve identified? The dominant one does seem less brilliant since I’ve separated them. It could also be the difference n sex? Could be many things including a different species I suppose?So little info available! I did see a pic from the supplier with a tank full of them and there were varying degrees of color.

    Hi hampala where exactly in Indonesia are you from? It might make identification easier. I envy you being able to catch such beauties in your “backyard”.

    Sorry Matt, can’t help you there. I haven’t found much info on them. Hampala you may join the yahoo goby group and post your pics/location and see if any of the taxonomists will reply.
