Very special thanks for the first photo of Zoramia gilberti to the famous Australien ichthyologist Dr. Gerry R. Allen.
This photo was taken at Madang, Papau Neu Guinea, where this species lives reef-associated in large aggregations among branching corals in sheltered lagoons and bays in a moderate depth range of 2 - 10 meters.
