I googled sicyopterus japonicus and found that it's a goby that climbs waterfalls and eats algae there. Cool fish, but I really doubt that you could keep in in an aquarium.

hawaiian goby. they climb not only to eat the algae but the pools above the waterfall are where they spawn.
That's not a planted tank. That's a jungle with glass around it- MFDROOKIE Circa 2011
