    Never use a common name to find info. Every fish has at least a dozen names depending on where you live! Use the scientific name in your search that is in the link I posted and you'll get the right info.

    The most common name is "Threadfin Goby."

    Liveaquaria.com has some odd common names listed for this fellow.
    Visit my Reef @ NewfieReef.com

    Doo-e,
    Azonic is right. I seem to remember seeing the name "Threadfin goby" at my LFS too for that fish.

    JlAqautics has it listed as a "Highfin shrimp"???!!!!! Look at the scientific name beside the common name.
