    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.

    Stock the tank you have, not the tank you plan to have. Always have and use patience.
    - 29g FW - Community
    - 55g SW - Blue Watchman Goby, Royal Gramma, 6-Line Wrasse, 2 Ocellaris Clownfish, and various corals and inverts
    For those of you who want a SW tank and never have had one before or just starting out, read this blog entry from my blog on AC, it will give you a place to start.

    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
