Hi Storm337!

That is Stiphodon imperiorientis
https://www.google.co.jp/search?q=Stiph ... e&ie=UTF-8


Hi karimli!
Thank you for sharing many splendid your pictures.
I'm very interested in the this super green green stiphodon.
Did you find the difference with S.semoni besides the body color?
For example the difference in the numbers of the scale and the tooth.

Furthermore,I have more doubts in S.rutilaureus in the Moluccas.
All S.rutilaureus of the Moluccas looked like immature individuals as far as I knew it,
did you see the adult one there?
What do you think the species of Sicyopterus which you watched in north Papua?


Hi sj861008!

To tell the truth I missed the Youtube link in the end of your last post.
Your water tank has abundant adherent algae and is very attractive.

I have yet watched only 2 individuals even in Stiphodon imperiorientis.
Of course I have not seen Stiphodon niraikanaiensis.
The person who has seen it because it is extremely rare is only several people.
Because the Kuroshio Current flows by Japan various fish drift from the south.

Hi Gobyonekenobi!

Thank you for sharing splendid pictures of your goby fish.
It is a very bright water tank.
When an alga is grown so that white sand will become green immediately, Stiphodon will be to be glad more.

Hi Odessy
the Stiph. Rutilarus I found in Muluku size around 2.5cm-3.5cm . and I am sure they are aldut, as I told u at the begining, that river very wired, all stiphodon include Stiph Semoni and very small, looks like other types Semoni. I also found Stiphdon Rutilarus in north of Pupua, same size like Maluku, and for sure is adult, By the way I have imported around 1000pcs Stiphdon Rutilarus from Maluku, all size are the same, I think there are some different Between the S.Rutilarus which u found.

If S.rutilaureus of the Maluku archipelago is an adult fish, I think that S.rutilaureus from Australia may be another species.
Or it may be "Neoteny".
Because the design of the body of both is similar very much, I thought it to be an immature fish of S.rutilaureus.
Is there the ichthyologist clarifying the difference of both?

By the way, I'm sorry, the meaning of the word "wired" is unidentified as far as I checked it.
Is it a meaning "thin stream"?
I'm looking forward to many pictures of your partner.

It is a male of S.rutilaureus which I saw in Australia.
I think the size of the body to be around 5cm

In my water tank.
I regard that this individual is a female of S.rutilaureus in Maluku islands.

Hi everyone, first of all i want to thank all of you for the great pictures that are being shared here!

But i need to know why my Stiphodon atropurpureus are not colouring up.
I have had these for about 3 weeks now and they eat repashy and graze algae.
I think they are doing good because they behave normal but they just dont look that nice even though i think they do fine.

The only Stiphodon species in my tank that really gets color is my 2 young male percnopterygionus.

I want to share some video's i hope you enjoy them and could give me some tips.
I just hope some of you can confirm that it is the atropurpureus. And maybe why they dont color up.
