Help ID these fish?

fishkid04

I got a new tank second hand the other day and I wasn't aware that in the left over muck there were hundreds of shrimp along with 3 surviving fish, the poor things had been sitting in pure poop for a few months in a garage, no heater or filter and only a puddle of water. the first 2 I have been told are possibly mollies, is this correct? the images were taken last night, the spots are just settlement from the substrate they look better today and the second fish I'm pretty sure is a goby, but what species? does anyone know?

Looks too dark to be a desert goby, but it could just be blending to match the substrate. I'm not sure of many other freshwater gobies in the Australian fish trade.

definitely looks darker than all the pictures, I assume it's freshwater, it was kept with ghost shrimp and it was in fresh water, surely it wouldn't have survived this long if it was salt/brackish right?
