    Question goby ID please

    What type of goby is this guy? He's a sand sifter, about 1.5" , and very entertaining.
    He has pink stripes horizontally along his body and a black Dorsal fin, he's not an amblygobius decussatus or the Valenciennea muralis, but they are the closest I can get.

    The RS said he had NFO, but the divers saw a group of them and got a few, and they didn't know iether.......So much for non-impulse buying.
    Here's another shot.

    It does look like him, but hasn't got the vertical stripes, but I think you hit the nail on the head....
    Grows to 13cm, wow, that's a big goby.....
