Caption: Gold neon goby (Gobiosoma randalli) peering from a stove-pipe sponge (Aplysina archeri). This goby, also known as the yellownose goby, is known for the symbiotic relationship it has with other, larger fish: it feeds on parasites that it picks from their skin. It can reach a length of up to seven centimetres, and is popular in the aquarium trade. Photographed off Andros Island in the Bahamas, in the Caribbean Sea.
