Desert Gobies!

I recall these little guys from many years ago, and haven't seen them for a while. I found a site selling sexed pairs so I had to get a pair (plus an extra female)! They are really interesting fish and great eaters! I tried for a while to get some decent pics of them tonight, but the camera just isn't good enough. I have some better equipment coming soon so hopefully I can get some pics to share.

And if all goes as planned, hopefully there will be many more of these little guys in the future! ;)

I remember having these little fellows myself years ago. The female is somewhat drab mottled brownish color and the male has some yellow, if I'm not mistaken. I remember that I put them into a tank, that was heavily laden with algea and forgot about them. I didn't feed or care for them for many months. Guess my surprise when I decided to clean the tank and found six of the critters thriving despite my neglect.

What site is selling them? I'd love to at least have a look at them.
