Goby Filming

Underwater Videography - www.scubaboard.com
I have recently moved away from exclusively photographing underwater to shooting stills and video. I am mainly using an Olympus E-M1, with the 17-42 mm kit lens and the 60 mm macro lens. I am focusing on filming my favorite fishes, the gobies. I am happy about some of the results, but I realize that there is lots of room for improvement! Any tips?

This is Randall's shrimp goby displaying.

These are some other shrimp gobies engaging in unusual body language:

And this is a fight between 2 versus one gobies in the sand.

In most of these videos I am placing the camera in the sand. The approach - without scaring the tiny fishes away - is something I have down from still photography. But stabilizing the camera to get smooth footage of tiny animals is a challenge. I have not managed to get decent footage of whip coral gobies (there is no sand to set the camera down in front of them). Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
