Another algae eating goby

This one is a Sicyopterus sp. Little bigger and bulkier than stiphodons but very nice as well. It seems I have different color variations on the same population. They seems to enjoy munching on algae and like good aeration.
Very interesting fish.

Pedro

where are they from? Not your supplier but geographic location. I am looking for a good central american bottom feeder.

I raise my sword in the air in the battle against clado. I have been beaten in this battle but the war is not over. As my wounds heal I amass another army, an army with many legs, an army of Amano's......

I thrust my tridant into the mass of medusa like staghorn. I am wounded but I refuse to take a knee.
