Peas in a pod

Peas in a pod

Look at those fuzzy faces!

Paragobiodon echinocephalus is one of several dwarf gobies that live their entire lives within the branches of SPS corals.  P. echinocephalus lives exclusively within Stylophora spp., thus earning its common name the Redhead Stylophora Goby.  They're often found in small groups and form monogamous pairs, like the two photographed by Ned.

Ned and Anna DeLoach of are out diving in the Indo-Pacific right now and should be back soon with a bunch of amazing photos, stories, and possibly new species to share! We can't wait! Cool
