@eatbreakfast do the new pictures help? They are now in the observation system so I can get as many pictures as you need! Would love to get a positive ID on these guys. (I haven't put much effort into this yet) Also I would love to pay out the contest winner if there is one!

I have named mine after the name I got when I ordered them. I´m not sure if it is right - it could be P.cincta or some other too. The pictures in FishBase show a large variation of colours for Priolepis semidoliata. The length is described as around 3 cm and its rather alike the length of mine. P.cincta can grow to 7 cm. I have had Priolepis semidoliata for many years now. I believe that all 4 original individuals have survive - it is totally impossible to see all 4 at the same time. They probably have spawn. They are still between 1.5 and 3 cm

There are 35 species in the genus Many of them looks similar. FishBase says that Priolepis semidoliata is very similar to Priolepis farcimen

@Dierks your a bad influence. Just saw this same goby at the local shop. I had to buy it. Do yours get big belly’s when they eat? This one has a fat belly, but they did just feed. May treat parasites anyways

They do look like they have big fat bellies for sure!
