Husbandry

(Heller & Snodgrass, 1903)

Very special thanks for the first photo of Lythrypnus gilberti to Dr. Gerry R. Allen and Dr. Ross Robertson, both have taken there photos in the Galapagos Islands.

This species is endemic to the Eastern Pacific, and is found only in the Galápagos.

The Galapagos blue-banded goby is a tiny, bold and aggressive fish, which lives in small recesses of rocky reefs, slopes and walls.

The goby feeds on various small benthic crustaceans in a depthrange of 1 to 40 meters.
