Are those spots red? If so, it is a Mogurnda mogurnda (fresh water northern purple spotted goby).

Closest goby I could find is in the Morgunda family of gobies, like Rock stated.



Morgunda Adspersa, but that fish lives in Australia....closest I could find color-wise according to this pic.

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.
