The Magnificent Shrimp Goby (Tomiyamichthys emilyae) is one of the underwater photographers’ favorite subjects because of its large sail-like colorful and spotted dorsal fin and it is also often accompanied by Randall’s pistol shrimp. These gobies mostly live on rubble and sand bottoms. The name Tomiyamichthys emilyae was given to honor the Canadian underwater photographer Emily Irving, who is a dedicated supporter of marine life conservation and has helped the authors on numerous ichthyological expeditions. The species can be found in locations of the western Pacific Ocean including Romblon Island and other areas in the Philippines.
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.
