Highighted items on the list are where Acanthogobius flavimanus may be found.
Remarks Inhabits muddy and sandy bottoms along the shore of bays and estuaries, sometimes ascends rivers (Ref. 559). Larvae and juveniles (0.9-1.3 cm SL) took mainly small planktonic animals, while newly settled and benthic juveniles (1.4-2.0 cm SL) consumed predominantly small benthic or epiphytic crustaceans, along with polychaetes. The contribution of polychaetes to the diets increased in larger individuals (2.1-5.3 and 5.4-11.4 cm SL). (Ref. 53631).
