Tag: Six-Spot Goby (Valenciennea Sexguttata)

The Six-Spot Goby (Valenciennea Sexguttata) is one of the less common species of Goby found in local waters.

It can be distinguished from other, similarly shaped species by its generally pale colouration and the main characteristic of approximately six blue spots around the head area (the number of spots need not always be six).
