The Green Clown Goby, also known as the Earspot Coral Goby, found usually among soft and hard coral colonies. They are a small stocky shaped fish with a very large head for their size. This species has a yellow to greenish-tan color with orange vertical stripes on its head and they have different color variations. Caution should be observed when placing these fish into a reef environment as they prefer to perch on stony corals. This frequently stresses the coral. Pairs will tear the skin off stony corals to make a nest.
