It looks like a blue gundgeon to me, they are noty gobies though. They are tile fish. The sci. name is Hoplolatilus starcki. I do not know anything about these fish, accept tilefish are very diofficult to keep alive in captivity. Most cannot fulfil their dietary requirements, although this one may be one of the easier of the species...
