The Redhead Goby (Paragobiodon echinocephalus) has a black body that is covered in soft, short bristles with a red-orange head. Redhead Gobies may live in a coral singly, in pairs or in groups with large corals generally hosting larger groups of fish. They rely on their coral host for food, shelter from predators and breeding sites. Like many reef fishes, Redhead Gobies are capable of changing from male to female, But unlike most sequential hermaphrodites, who change only once during their lifetime, Paragobiodon echinocephalus can change it repeatedly in either direction. Multiple changes from female to male or male to female were first described in this species.
We love macro and super macro photography and especially finding rare and special critters around
our island home. We do our best in identifying all critters on this website correctly; however, we
might make mistakes that can be present on this website.
Please keep in mind that this website is created for scuba divers, underwater photographers, and
everybody interested in marine animals. This website is created and organized from a diver’s and an
underwater photographer’s point of view. That’s why we primarily group animals together in a
meaningful way for divers and underwater photographers.
