Is this a mudskipper?

Need an ID of this fish for a mate of mine. Are we right thinking its a mudskipper? Neither of us have seen one in the flesh before.

Looks like one to me, those eyes on top of the head and the twin dorsal fins, I would say it it, put it out of the water, see how it breathes, if it opens it's gills like flaps and starts walking, then yea be sure about it, and you might also see it jumping

Thanks. It's really stressed ATM so she's not messing with it too much. It was a trade in from a FW tank.

Nice! I'm pretty interested in setting a mudskipper tank now, probably setting up a 20 gallon long with 3 Atlantic mudskippers
