Blue Neon Goby + Some other type?

    Both of these gobies, the ones on the rock and the ones on the sand, were sold by my local lfs (4 months apart) as blue neon stiphodon gobies.

    They don't look the same to me. Thoughts?
    Sorry the pictures are upside down. I'm not sure why they're posting that way.

    They are different species. One is either s. atropurpureus or s. semoni (a bit too skinny to tell which one) and the other is s. ornatus (also seen it listed as s. elegans which it is not).

    So, same trade name, different fish. Interesting. Thanks!
