Dusky Frillgoby (Bathygobius fuscus)

The Dusky Frillgoby is mainly a sea fish, but does also occur in brackish water, especially in mangrove areas, and occasionally moves also into freshwater.

This is primarily a marine species occasionally entering freshwaters. It is a detritus feeder, and it prefers habitats with sand and rubble, soft coral and open reefs.
