Begging for food:
Can see the jointed fins. Not to get into any arguments, but I keep thing these guys could be some sort of evolutionary link:
These guys are MUCH harder to get to flareup then bettas! The dorsal fin is the best ID for determining species:
Hard little worker:

I just brought home a ton of foam & have a ton of potting soil. Now I have a spare 10gal so i'm going to work on converting it to a much improved paludarium &/or riparium for him.
From my personal observations over the last year, he really prefers water not much higher then his eyes. He will dive down fully submerged for food, but 9 times of out 10 he's either up on the sand or on his rocks I keep in the deeper section of the water. They don't swim very well & are capable of drowning. On the other hand, they don't really live in stagnant water in the wild. Balancing everything can be fun!
In the future I want to do a 40g breeder or 55gal mangrove riparium for a herd of Indian mudskippers, bumblebee gobies, & land crabs.

Oooh, better yet, make a journal and show it step by step from the beginning!

Because I was researching this guy,
Didn't even know there are species of mudskippers that are more aquatic
If I had the money & room for another, i'd totally have that mudskipper also.
