Stiphodon simoni (Cobalt Blue Goby)

Hi all... just purchased the last of these at Aqua Imports on Saturday. And then I learned he needs a buddy. Let me know if you see them elsewhere? Thanks! I'd also be interested in other FW gobies...

Talk to the guys at Aqua imports, they do custom orders for people too, and do not make you buy the whole shipment like some LFS's do.

They can get in some crazy crazy stuff as well.

Thanks all... I knew nothing about the genus when I saw the little lonely guy. He has lots of personality! Very cute and hope he will color up even more once he is all comfy. Aqua Imports says they should have more in a couple of weeks. If not, I will check with msjinkzd. I may be hooked on the genus now!

I'll keep you posted on how he does... he's a bit shy right now, and often retreats to a nook he created in a shrubbery of Christmas Moss.
