 For  a  change  a  very  nice  thread  by  Vyas  and  beautiful  pictures  posted  by  fellow  hobbyists
 
 The  only  2  strains  I  had  ever  kept  are  Sicyopterus  Griseus  &  Bumble  Bee's.
 
 Sicyopterus  Griseus  was  a  treat  in  a  planted  tank  as  it  kept  algae  at  bay  and  always  kept  to  itsef.  On  the  other  hand  bumble  bee's  were  a  little  aggressive  to  there  own  kind.
 
 Not  able  to  resize  the  picture  to  share  the  picture.
 
 Regards,
 Surya

 Saumya  :  This  thread  is  for  gobies  ...Not  necessarily  Native...The  species  I  have  kept  are  primarily  Indian  and  hence  the  above  have  been  limited  to  Indian  Species..
 
 Please  post  away  any  info  on  Gobies  and  it  would  be  most  welcome....
 
 Stiphodon  Sp  are  drool  material  and  Guess  it  will  remain  so  considering  their  availability  in  India

 Vyas  I  remember  when  you  got  the  Taenioides  cirratus  they  just  looked  awesome.  Its  a  type  of  cryptic  fish.  Weird  looking  face  it  had.  Awesome  thread.
