Redigobius leveri (Fowler)

Lever’s Goby (Redigobius leveri)

Lever’s Goby is endemic to the Fiji Islands.

This tiny freshwater goby, which may reach a body length of only about 4 cm, lives in several creeks and rivers in the lowlands of Fiji’s larger islands, but seems, however, not to occur on the island of Vanua Levu.

The fish stays mainly near the bottom of the water and feeds on smaller invertebrates.
