Caption: Toothy goby (Pleurosicya mossambica, centre) or many-host goby hiding on a sea fan, a type of coral. Its camouflage protects it from predators. This goby only leaves its sea fan to grab a morsel of food before darting back to safety. It feeds mainly on tiny shrimps and other crustaceans. It reaches around 3 centimetres in length. Photographed in Malaysia.
