Stiphodon Atropupureus

So, I do not have any Stiphodon atropurpureus or indeed any species in that genus.  I know someone who keeps them, but hopefully there will be some one here with direct experience who will reply to this thread.

From by second hand understanding, the only trick to keeping them is that they are more algae/periphyton eaters than say, the Rhinogobius species, which I have direct experience with.  So I've been told not to add them to too clean of a tank, e.g. a new tank, without enough algae.  Otherwise they should be pretty straight forward.  Again from what I have been told. 

I do know they would be challenging to breed, if at all possible, in a home setting.   If that is your goal some of the Rhinogobius species would be better.  That what I have the latter as opposed to the former.  Good luck!
