Hi there!

Can anyone tell me what species is this?
I'm keeping two of this interesting fish, but don't know the name.

Thanks,
AaronLam

um Aaron I think we are going to need some more info about this so called fish. A picture or possibly a description would help a bunch. Although you did come to the right spot for fish ID. The AC team is the best IDers in the all of cyber space...well at least in the top...okok...close to the top. lol

Well maybe not close to the top but sometimes we get one right ;-)

Kidding aside, Nothernboy is right. We will need more info and preferable a picture to help you.

Hi William / NorthernBoy,

Well at least i only managed to post the 2 images of the fish i mentioned in the PHOTO GALLERY section. Perhaps you both can see the image with this link...

Sorry. I absolutely awared that it's kind of stupid to get answer with that minimal info. The message was accidentally sent before i realized that i should insert the pictures of the fish first, but somehow this POST REPLY does not allow users to insert picture, isn't it? Don't know how to insert pictures here.

Thanks in advance,
AaronLam

I've kept bumble bee before, they don't look like that at all. This unknown goby-like fish is at around 2" long.

Give me some time...I'm looking around. I think that it may be a blenny not a goby.

ok I think I have found the bugger.

Picture won't post so you'll have to link.

It is a Phenablennius heyligeri also called Vietnamese Blenny. Let me know if it is not quite right. I am pretty sure I have narrowed the family and order but might not be right class.

Pretty fish...Do you have a picture going from front to back as well? I'd like to see eyes, mouth and head shape.

Oh yeah, i'll shoot a few photos of it. :)
It looks so much like a helicopter to me. Again, it was given by my father. It's very unique and artistic looking fish.
