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.

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