Semiscaled goby

The Semiscaled goby lives in the demersal, marine, depth range 0 - 20 m environment.

On Bari Reef (Bonaire) the semiscaled goby lives on limestone rocks covered with algal mats in 2-4m of depth, sometimes together with secretary blennies. I found them mostly/only on the side of the rock facing the sandy floor that sloped toward the ocean. More
