Wow. That is one of the toughest question I have had in a loooonnnngg time. After not being able to Google any info, I IM'd a couple of my borderline ichtyologist friends and called a young man( he's 38 ) that is a full-blown marine biologist, with a doctorate, and could not find an answer for you. I know some about them now, though. If what you have is a leaf goblinfish, I don't doubt that it is, it has other names in the hobby. Wasp fish and freshwater butterfly grouper being two. They are a rather deep water fish but have been captured in brackish mangrove swamps. But for the life of me, I could not find anything about whether they could tolerate their own species in the same tank.
Neovespicula depressifrons is the scientific name also by the way. I looked for 15 minutes or more for Neovespicula depressi, which is close, but not close enough. lol
Tony, the marine biologist, said he would dig into it deeper for me, but to give him a little time as his schedule is pretty tight right now. Until then, I will keep digging. I'm sure he will come up with the answer, he usually does.
