Husbandry

The Oval-spot goby occurs in coral-reef slopes in the protected bays, and is found solitary on muddy or sandy-mud bottoms with dead-coral rubbles under the heavy growth of corals.
The shown goby was found and photographed by Jay Lord in the silt that collects on and around some of the lagoon shipwrecks.
