Can you ID this fish?

Recommended Posts

Hello !

 

Can anybody help me identifying this fish ? A magazine wants to publish a picture (not this one) but I need to give them all the info.

It was taken in the Pacific Ocean, off the coast of Ecuador.

 

Thanks a lot for your help !

Looks like a Rainbow Scorpionfish (Brujo Arco Iris) (Scorpaenodes xyris).

Thanks a lot jlyle, but I don't think it is. I forgot to tell you, this is a really tiny fish, about 1 and a half inch.

Maybe a blenny of some kind ??

Im clueless...

thanks
