cant find an online reference for this lil guy
wife has hidden the ID books
Need to know asap. lol

I can tell you it was shot in Looe Key, July 2004. Kept poppin in and out of his hole. I'm sure its common (actually hoping it is). My best guess was a horned blenny, but the body markings dont seem the same. Can anyone tell me what it is, and if so, the original species name?

Thanks in advance,
Stu
