Whitegirdled gobies live in eelgrass beds in group and other locations with plentiful seagrass. They have pink bodies with horizontal stripes. When threatened, they turn into a darker color and hide behind rocks.
When small whitegirdled gobies gather, it looks like a bunch of used tealeaves, which is the origin of its Japanese name, “Chagara” (leftover tealeaves).
