It's a dartfish of some kind, for sure. Similar to a Blue Gudgeon Goby but the fins are not black. Can you get a better picture of it?

2x Occellaris, 1 Pajama, 1 Neon Dottyback.

Current Tank Info: 55gal tank, sumpless, ReefOctopus Classic 90, Twin bulb T5.

I seem to remember a thread where an experienced reefer would comment about fish compatibility and suggestions for stocking fish.
Anyone remember this thread here?

I'm looking to add a few fish and have a question.
