    Good day guys and galz,
    Im fairly new to this forum stuff, so excuse if Im at the wrong place. I bought some fish for my tank over the weekend, and bough two of these fish,( in the picture). The guy described it as a goby knight, and i knew it wasnt, but ive never seen a fish like this. So being all confused i bought 2. It sticks to the side,and changes colour to black, or green, or white depending on what surface it sticks to, like a chameleon. I havent seen it being aggressive. it just sits around. Its about 10cm long(3inches+-). Please can any one tell me what this is?

    Welcome to the community.

    Not sure what that might be

    The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of the act

    I am not 100% sure it is a goby, also sold as a cowfish.. if it is, somewhat agressive as it gets older, it is like a lazy wolf fish. marbled goby is what they are somtimes sold under, they get like 2 feet and are unactive till a fish comes by and BOOM

    ps. never go into a fish store with wallet untill you have researched what you want.. not being rude just saying

    +1 with angelfish - it's no fun getting an unidentified fish and then learning that the tank/environment you have set up is potentially unsuitable for it - not saying that's your case but some fish have special requirements (like certain food, tankmates, size of tank, etc.) that should be known first.
