Wire Coral Goby

Bryaninops yongei


Also known as Reef Goby, Yonge's Wire Coral Goby, Sea Whip Goby, Whip Goby and Whip Coral Goby. They feed on small invertebrates and zooplankton, and grow to a length of about 4cm.


Found singly or as a male-and-female pair on the sea whip coral (Cirripathes anguina). Widespread in the Indo-Pacific region.


I photographed this goby during a day dive at a depth of about 17m or so.

Beautiful capture. The three photos do give a wider perspective. The first one and the last one, together, make it impossible not to love this spotting. Wonderful. Thanks for sharing.
