WhyReef - Lifestyle

The red-barred shrimp-goby is one of the most common and smallest fish on the reef. It lives in sandy areas with a snapping shrimp, standing guard over their burrow all day long. When shrimp-gobies reproduce, the females lay the eggs, but the males watch over the eggs until they hatch.
