This dwarf goby boasts brilliant coloration in males and is an active and entertaining fish for peaceful aquariums with high water flow.

The Red Lipstick Sicyopus Goby (Sicyopus rubicundus) is a very rare freshwater dwarf goby that is native to Indonesia.  It is known for the yellow second dorsal fin and bright red/orange coloration that mature male specimens display on their lips and back half of the body.  Females are not as colorful, but are still very active and interesting.  This fascinating fish is a micropredator that is an excellent candidate for the mature aquarium.  There have been some instances where they may go after dwarf shrimp or other nano ivertebrates but they are safe to keep with larger species of shrimp.
