gobi or eel ???

I bought this fella cuz I love it's top and bottom fin. The fin waves like a freshwater knife fish's fin.. even my lfs owner don't know what it is. So hopefully one of u guys can ID it.. It is about 4"in. all yellow in color. Below are the best pix I got of him.. cuz he hides so much..

Possibly Dinematichthys riukiuensis, the yellow brotula.

Definitely a yellow/gold (whichever you prefer to call it) brotula. Have gotten them at my store maybe twice or three times at best in a two year period. Pretty rare. Ours ate mysis shrimp.. Good luck.
