Hmmm... I'm not sure what _isn't_ goby about it?

I was looking-in-the TNHC list and looked-in-the freshwater goby, Gobionellus
shufeldti, and that was lookin' pretty close. Seems to have the location
right too. What do you think?

FWIW... You'll probably find this useful, although I hope you continue to
share your photos Dan :)

Then you can Google or Google Images the sci names, or look them up on, which does a direct link to Google Images from the
Natureserve Explorer.

Good point! It doesn't look like a goby/gudgeon/sleeper either. I don't
really know what else to suggest.
