    It's Rhinogobius duospilus that I collected recently. I got influenced by my friend, who showed the interesting world of Rhinogobius.

    Here's the male flaring, too bad broken fin..I shall continue work on this fish



    And here is the female.

    very cute, didn't know they flare like that
    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.

    The type locality is from Hong Kong, so I will have to get some for comparison end of this month.

    What is the temperature that these guys can tolerate? From Hong Kong, so must be quite cool?

    Very nice pics & fishes...!!
    I like gobies, but my first experience wasn't good.
    In my observation gobies tend to move slowly, from some spot to another spot, then to another spot, not swim freely like tetras, that's another factor why I like this fish.
    Several days after I bought it, I noticed yellowish or white sponge like things (maybe fungus) grew on the gobi's body surface, before I threw it to the ditch (because I couldn't cure the fungus, I've tried salt bath, other medication too, I even tried to manually remove the fungus), the fungus grew in almost all part of gobi's body, and it became very thin because it didn't want to eat...

    Do all gobies have this kind of problem...? Or is it because their slow movement make them easily got fungus...?
    When my gobi had the fungus problem, the other fishes like tetras still healthy & they never had the same fungus problem.

    Sorry, maybe I post this in the wrong section...?
    Because actually I really want to hear from Mr. Tree, who seems to have high experience in gobies...
