Stiphodon atropurpureus (Freshwater Neon Goby)
A relatively sturdy-looking goby with a cylindrical body. This species is adapted to fast-flowing, subtropical streams and will stay close to the substrate in most aquaria. It swims poorly.
Males have a blue-grey body with black bands running from nose to tail. In good condition, and when settled into their home, the males can turn neon blue. Females are less brightly coloured, and the banding on the flanks is not so distinct.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
A peaceful, bottom-dwelling fish that will do well only in a subtropical aquarium alongside species from a similar biotope. White cloud mountain minnows, hillstream loaches, and Rhinogobius duospilus would make ideal companions. Feeds primarily on small invertebrates such as bloodworms.
Not yet bred in captivity.
