Hello everyone,
I’m new to the forum but I could use some help identifying my fish.
I have around 7 or so Brachygobius in my 10 gallon planted brackish tank. I have the salinity at 1.005 sg
I bought them at the store I work at under the common name but couldn’t find out which species they were. I do know I have gobies my tank from two different shipments.
Anyways, I am wondering if anybody can positively ID these:
I think the first one might be B. Doriae or B. Sabunas but I’m im not sure if the goby with the funky pattern is B. Xanthomelas or not
Thank you for reading!

I wanted to blurt out xanthozonus but I have recently discovered that there are quite a few of these various Brachygobius species and as @itiwhetu says , inconsistent patterns make them hard to tell apart.
