A friend of mine is looking to pick this fish up. Anybody know what it is and what the typical asking price is for one? Any help is appreciated!


Thanks in advance!

I know! They remind me of a little "saltwater snakehead" or something. I've never seen them before.

On another forum, someone said they are huge Engineer Goby's. Does that sound like an accurate ID? Doesn't look impossible to me...

I'm not sure what it is. I've never seen one before. I'll keep trying to find it, till an answer is found.

EDIT: Engineer Goby seems like the most likely ID at this point to me.

lol, I thought the same thing, i was about to say snake head until I saw it it was in FW.

Yes, the engineer blenny/goby (Pholidichthys leucotaenia)

It's not actually either a blenny or a goby and grows to over 18 inches in length

Thanks all! I think these specimens are around 12" now.
