So I seem to be on bit of a macro run ;^) I captured this little goby on a trip to the Banda Sea, in Indonesia. When trying to identify it, I had to wade through pages and pages (and yet more pages) of goby images in my ID book (Reef Fish Identification – Tropical Pacific – Allen, Humann, Deloach & Steene) to try to make a match. So many gobies, so little time (and patience ;^)
Although this guy is resting on a bubble coral, I think it is a Stonycoral Ghostgoby. Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong.
These gobies are pretty tiny – max about an inch long, and they tend to dart around, though they never leave the area.
