Overview

Brief Summary

Gobies of the gobiid subfamily Amblyopinae are elongate, mud-dwelling fishes of the Indo-West Pacific region that are commonly referred to as “eel gobies” or “worm gobies”. In life, these gobies are pink, purple, or red. In contrast to the majority of gobies, amblyopine gobies have a continuous dorsal fin; the spinous (first) and soft (second) dorsal fins are connected by membrane. Because they live in turbid water habitats, the eyes of amblyopines are reduced in size and may have limited function.
