Yoshi's Trimma goby!

A new Japanese dwarf goby has just been officially cataloged into the books. Like many other new Trimma and Eviota species recently discovered, Trimma yoshinoi is another pint-sized beauty!

The new species is described from five specimens collected at Ryukyu Islands (Southern Japan) at a depth of 36 meters (over 100 feet deep), making this a relatively deepwater Trimma species.  Trimma yoshinoi is described in the latest publication of Journal of the Ocean Science Foundation.

I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
