A male of my Sicyopterus sp seems to have been in heat, and a color of the body changed loudly and has begun to chase around a female.
It was sold as an imported Sicyopterus goby by Indonesia.
There is a case sold as "mountain rock goby".
The video clip is uploaded in Youtube, too.
The detailed past post about these gobies is this place.

I think that it resembles dugong and a manatee.
Also the video grazing algae of gobies of the Stiphodon genus is uploaded incidentally.
Fish is very interesting, now I have two new fish in my aquarium with my Stiphodon semoni the seller to think of Stiphodon atropurpureus but at first glance I knew that it's Sicyopterus.
I discovered a new species and I could observe different behavior Stiphodon.
I have a Sicyopterus who have dug into the sand as cichlids and other put it in the slop with Stiphodon.
I began to observe little aggression between Stiphodon, thought I put stones in the right height to prevent them from watching the aquarium at a volume of 54 liters.
(4 Stiphodon semoni Sicyopterus + 2)
Think you that the number of fish and suitable for this type of volume?
I think making a river bottom, but behavior Stiphodon semoni me to think differently.
So I wonder if you could help me ...
As can be seen, they seem to be able to inhabit the congestion on pictures and the video of this thread if even algae is enough.tyrano34 wrote:Think you that the number of fish and suitable for this type of volume?
I use the water tank of 54 liters.tyrano34 wrote:how many liter minimum for a Stiphodon?
the Sicyopterus are peaceful or aggressive with Stiphodon?
27 small Stiphodon and Sicyopterus lived more than two or three years by much time.

Is it survivable lowest quantity of water?
I think that even 1 liter per one small fish can live if I can maintain cleanliness of the water.
I minimize injection of the food (organic matter) from the outside of the water tank, and it is a premise to live mainly on the algae (organic matter) which I multiplied inside of the water tank.
My Sicyopterus are more peaceful rather than my Stiphodon.

I have finished finally reading the thread.
Thank you very much for valuable information.
I am amazed to learn to have succeeded in breeding of Sicyopterus.
Would he control the salinity of the water tank ideally !?
Or will Sicyopterus which can spread only with pure fresh water be in India !?
There are some kinds that can spread without salt water in the fish of the goby department.
Many of Rinogobius are amphidromous migration, but there is R. flumineus which can spread with pure fresh water.
Some LOL member appears in that forum.
Irrelatively two pieces of pictures of Sicyopterus and Stiphodon.
Which kind is it? They change their colour and can be completely ivory-pale with and without their remarking eye-drop spot. Also their "racing-stripe", appears in all possible variations.
