Marine; freshwater; brackish; benthopelagic; amphidromous (Ref. 59012). Tropical; 21°C - 28°C (Ref. 12468); 35°N - 6°N
Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 4.2 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 44894)
Asia and Oceania: Japan southward to the Philippines, Indonesia, New Guinea and Australia. Reported from Africa: south to Coffee Bay, South Africa (Ref. 2798) and Seychelles (Ref. 4343). Widely distributed over the West tropical Pacific, from Japan to the Philippines, Indonesia, New-Guinea, North of Australia, Vanuatu and New Caledonia (Ref. 87781). The Redigobius genus is actually being revised and especially the bikolanus group that should be splitted into several taxa, leading to a revision of the group distribution also (Ref. 87781).
Adults inhabit creeks, rivers and brackish estuaries (Ref. 2847, 44894). Found in tidal streams (Ref. 4343, 44894). Sometimes seen upstream a short distance from the tidal zone. Feed on small fishes and invertebrates. Not seen in markets (Ref. 12693).
