i’m from trinidad, i know that fish all too well, we use it in aquariums as cleaner fishes, it’s mouth is under it’s boby and acts as a suction device to hold on to rocks and the glass of aquariums when it’s not at the bottom, it’s a bottom dwelling fish, our local name for it here is “TEATTA” or if it’s a big one a “MAMA-TEATTA” there’s also a rare one that looks like a dead rotting fish called a “JUMBIE-TEATTA”
