Looks like Neovespicula depressifrons, also known as butterfly goby, waspfish, dusty panther goby's, and leaf goblin fish. They are a venomous fish so watch out!

Wildiana, how long have you had him? I've never had one, but all the articles I've seen about them lists them as living in fresh, brackish, or salt. But on all the forums that talk about them, the people with experience say brackish only.

For Sale: Parachute. Only used once, never opened, small stain.

thanks guys. i'll post more on my equipment once i get all the names of the my plants together.

yes it is a buttly goby. the research i came across states my tetra are in danger. i had this guy for about a month now and have not lose a fish YET. also my water is freshwater, though when i got hime i also got 4 bummble bee goble and i addes some salt but not much. but since then had done many water changes not adding the salt. they appear healthy and happy but ony they will know.

i haven't seen the butterfly eat yet. i got me some ghost shrimps (my research indicated brime shrimp or ghost shrimp) but all 5 of them are still alive. i feed bloom worms once in a while and he doesn't it eat. he must be doijng something, still appear the same as i got him.

thanks again
