The one from live aquaria I posted is the same one. They called it a white banded goby but its a species discovered in 2006 that technically has no "regular" name.

If you do buy one, mame sure you get a pistol shrimp. There colors come out more ahem they are paired up together. Sometimes you can find them in stores. By me here in NJ, I see them more and more but not everywhere. Under good lighting, and paired with the shrimp, you will see their true markings.

I've been looking all day online trying to find a site that sells a goby as colorful as the pic you posted!! I guess I have to drive to New Jersey! Lol! I hope not! I didn't see it on liveaquaria!

This one is still available at Live Aquaria. As I said, the colors alter depending on the fish's mood. That one picture is to the extreme but they are usually pretty close on a daily basis.
My lfs has two available for $25. If you want one, I can buy it for you and ship it if you don't like the live aquaria one.

So there's no confusion I want the one that looks like a mandarin! If you can find one exactly like that, I would love to purchase!!!!!!

What LFS do you use? I'm in the southern part of our fine state, and tend to hit either the Aquarium Center or JB's Tropical Fish. I'm just wondering if they could transfer one from your store to there (or it might just be easier/cheaper to drive to yours).
