Orangespotted Goby Video Stock Footage
This species is symbiotic with snapper shrimp Alpheus floridanus, sharing the burrow with the shrimps, usually a pair, on unvegetated silty substrates in waters of less than 9 metres (30 ft) depth. The goby and its host shrimps interact closely and the goby is dependent on its hosts' burrow for cover. The goby acts as a sentinel, watching for danger from the entrance of the burrow. The diet of the orangespotted goby consists mainly of small gastropods, decapods, ostracods and isopods.
