    Really cool fish.
    Price seems a bit extreme.

    Brilliant Frans. Perfect for a Nano, but the shrimp would finish the glass in no time.
    This kind of symbiotic life should be present in each reeftank, if
    the glass thickness is 10mm and above.
    In my opinion there are many more nicer gobies and shrimps available.
    And cheaper! I had a pair, goby and shrimp, in my first tank and it is such a pleasure to watch them. Wonder why I have never seen this here in SA!

    Think the price is due to the rarity. Might be very difficult to catch due to its small size & secretive nature, also might be limited distribution due to the commensal shrimp...really dont know.

    But for the keen divers, they have been recorded in Sodwana area
