, thanks heaps,
the two that i have we caught from a local estuary where there were heaps. we werent expecting anything like it in the area but have been proven wrong because there are other fish that we have got that are really tropical considering this is a temperate environment. I have found that they are territorial and i have been feeding them marine algae frozen blocks that they love and have even bitten my finger for. They eat blood worms along with these cichlid pellets we have that are left over from a previous cichlid setup we have done.
i myself think it is a goby becuase firstly it has a structure exactly to all the other plain looking gobies in the area. these other gobies i have listed above (the one eating a fish) and basically the bottom fins (which you seem interested in) there are two, a large red fin at the back and a small fin under its head that allows it to stand up tall. the rest you can see. we have many books at home covering alot of gobies but cannot find it and i thought it was weird considering how great it looks. i dont think it is a jawfish becuase i took a look at other jawfish from australia and it really looked nothing like them, they were alot freaky and different. it does not sift the sand either.
ill post the photos now, enjoy :D :
this is the best icture i have of it so far.
i dont have a picture of the fish showing all its fins yet but this goby has the same structure (i think it is a goby anyway, a book i had said it was)
this is another goby looking fish we have caught.
we have a pack of eight of these called stripys, they are really common around our areas.
these are eastern jumping blennies that we saved from a tiny rock pool that had an octopus in it.
and finally heres the a stupid toadfish we had to test the water and have taken back:
