1. The Practical Aquaponics discussion forum has been in operation for the last 5 years...

    We have enjoyed giving this service free of charge however ongoing increasing financial costs of running this service is making it increasingly difficult. Up until now we have resisted advertising as a means of a revenue stream to help run this forum but it has become inevitable that extra revenue is required to run this forum.

    We have introduced a donate button to help offset the cost of running this forum. It is completely voluntary, but if you would like to donate, all donations would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Murray..

    Fresh to brackish water. Other fish in same area, tilapia, convicts, banded jewels, pelco catfish, and guppies. Seems to be a bottom feeder of some sort.

    Thanks for any guesses.

    O'opu Akupa (Eleotris sandwicensis) or a local subspecies.

    I agree with Robert123 , it's a freshwater gobi endemic to the Hawaiian Islands.
