The Seven-figure Pygmy Goby (Eviota sigillata) is also known as Adorned Dwarf Goby. They are widespread through the tropical waters of the Indo-Pacific including Romblon Province. These gobies are mostly found in depths from 3 to 20 meters at several of our dive sites. They have one of the shortest known lifespan of all vertebrate as they only live for around 59 days.
