Goby question

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I'm quite insecure about this small soft coral goby from Bali.

There was more than one species living on this soft coral and their length was about 1,5 - 2 cm.

I'm concidering a Pleurosicya boldinghi...

 

Any hint is appreciated!

 

Cheers

Ok, because the goby seems to sit on a sea fan (Acanthogorgia sp.?) it could be a Bryaninops sp.

Maybe a Common Ghostgoby (Pleurosicya mossambica), the have a variation of colours but often with white dash markings along the spine, plus they like to perch on a range of soft coral.

Thanks for your consideration, Brian!

It seems very hard ro get a correct ID - your suggestion is also worth considering.

I'm confused...

 

Cheers
