Tag: Mural Goby (Valenciennea Muralis)

A common goby in this area, the Mural Goby (Valenciennea Muralis) is quite similar in appearance to the Nocturna (Amblygobius Nocturna), Immaculate (Valenciennea Immaculata) and Orange-Striped (Amblygobius Decussatus) Gobies.

The main features which distinguish it from these other species are the black mark on the dorsal fin, and in particular, the comical yellow "lips".
