Stiphodon Atropurpureus (Blue Neon Gobi)

Hi everybody.
I am interesting buy this fish, so far I can't find too many information about them. Maybe somebody have Stiphodon Atropurpureus in your tank and can give me more information about this fish? What kind of algae eat SA? He eat algae from glass too? This fish like live in groups or one or two fish in tank? SA can live in community tank?

This is a cool looking species. I haven't heard of them in particular so I had to google them and pulled up this profile Stiphodon atropurpureus (Blue Neon Goby) — Seriously Fish

Hopefully someone has some info on them, their behavior according to that site is very reminiscent of native darter species here. Are you buying them local or online?

Yes, I'm talking about this store. So far I don't have very good experience with communication with the manager in Petland. I left him a message many times and he never call me back. Two weeks ago I was talking him face to face and nothing change, I don't see this fish in store. I must meet him again maybe on Tuesday next week when he doing order of freshwater fish.
I am never ordered fish online. Shipping costs always scars me.
Maybe you have idea where I can buy some of Stiphodon? Second fish what I'm looking for is Clown Killifish. I can't find bought this fish in stores in Pensacola and don't see this fish for sale online too

I ordered Stiphodon atropurpureus in my local Petland. On Wednesday this fish arrived to the store and now eight of them swimming in my tanks. This is really cool fish. I am very happy.
