    @Dane G, you know the catalina goby is a coldwater species & wont live very long in a tropical tank.
    I also wanted one a couple years ago but none of the petstores could get hold of one... Perhaps perky can work some magic, lol

    Sorry man... Yeah, i know, they are absolutely stunning!
    There are other small gobies & blennies that are also stunning & easy to care for...

    You can also perhaps have a look at this... Stunning little fish...

    LOL, Nope, was proposing an alternative for a uniquely colored fish... Blue spotted jawfish.

    Yeah, they can be a bit expensive @Dane G, but stunning none the less.
    The yasha / highfin gobies can also be great if you get them a pistol/simbiotic shrimp to live with.
