Hi folks. Can anyone identify this goby for me please? Its approx. 4-5 cms long. Found it in the tank a few days ago and can only conclude it came in with a recent coral purchase, as nothing else has been added for weeks. The shop that I bought it from isn't missing a fish, so they didn't know about it. Hopefully this will be a welcome stowaway. Thanks in advance for any help
