In the river of Okinawa, a fish class of amphidromous accounts for most.
Fishes that live in freshwater and brackish waters of Okinawa.
Probably fish species from the top to the sixth step lives together with Stiphodon.

This one is rather difficult to photograph. It kept on swimming every time I try to take its picture.
I am sorry that some of my photos are off-centered and are not clear. Its difficult to take their pictures because they move a lot. Anyway, I was hoping to take better pictures next time.
By the way Odyssey, we have a lot of Sicydiinae (Sicyopterus, Stiphodon, Lentipes) and Sinogastromyzon and Hemimyzon species here in Taiwan. But in my lab, we only research Sicydiinae and other amphidromous goby species like Rhinogobius, Glossogobius, Awaous etc. Also my lab mate took a lot of Stipodon/Sicyopterus pictures from the rivers in southern Taiwan. I'll try to ask him for some copies.

And finally, does enyone keep Stiphodons with Rhionogobiuses?
The male female ratios of sold Stiphodon are different by a species.
But only my feeling, the impression is as follows.
S.percnopterygionus is 1:1
S.atropurpureus is 1:1
Blue-moon is 1:1
Rainbow-color is 20:1
Orange-fin is 20:1
I do not know why there is a difference in the number of males and females.
The frequency of the water change for twice a month.
I change a one-third of the gross quantity every time.
The quantity is approximately 20 liters.
For my impression, most Rhinogobius is violent-tempered.
Stiphodon is a part of the a variety of fish species in my water tank.
Picts of the fish which can coexist with Stiphodon peacefully
