Yellow Pygmy Goby (Lubricogobius exiguus)
Rubbish lying on the bottom of the ocean is not always a bad thing, it can make good habitat for marine life. Discarded bottles have become a popular habitat for the yellow pygmy-goby. In areas such as Lembeh Strait they are more frequently found in bottles than their natural habitat.
