Underwater Photography 52-365 Red Mouthed Goby Portrait

“Red Mouthed Goby Portrait” Project Picture 52/365

For some reason I don’t get to understand, there are several species I specially like to spot while diving, gobies are one of them and strangely enough I had not seen this specie until the first day I dove with a camera.

It is a Red Mouthed Goby Gobius Cruentatus, I think it is obvious why it gets this name. You can normally see them on sand bottoms either on a cove or nearby.

After finding them several times I discovered that every time I found one individual of this specie there was always an individual of “Tripterygion melanurus” very close, I do not know if this is a type of symbiosis or just that they share the house, so I am looking for more information or a scientific study to either confirm it or deny it.

Por algún motivo, hay varias especies que disfruto encontrándome bajo el agua,los gobios son unos de ellos y curiosamente no había visto esta especie hasta el primer día me bucee con una cámara.

Se trata de un Gobio de Boca Roja “Gobius cruentatus”, creo que es obvio por qué reciben ese nombre. Normalmente, se les suele ver en fondos de arena dentro de alguna cueva o a sus alrededores.
Después de encontrármelos varias veces he descubierto que cada vez que veo un individuo de esta especie, siempre hay un “Tripterygion melanurus” muy cerca, no sé si es por algún un tipo de simbiosis o simplemente comparten casa, por lo que estoy buscando más información o algún estudio científico que lo confirme o desestime.
