Recommended Posts

Hello, I would like some help to ID this lovely fella.

I'm prety sure is common but I have never seen it in the ocean neither pictures.

It is from the Indic Ocean at the north of Mauritius Island.

I'd say blenny rather than goby. There are a number of them with red spots on a brown body.....but more of the animal would be needed to tell them apart. Take a look at Cirripectes springeri and C. variolosus and C. stigmaticus, for example.

Thank you very much Wolfgang, I would have never identified it by myself.

Since I found it inside an acropora, I will go with Spotted coral croucher.
