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.
