Anyone know this Blenny from Indonesia?

Recommended Posts

This very active blenny was at 60 feet usually out of his hole/home in Triton Bay.

Take a look at Ecsenius lineatus, Lined Blenny.  Can't find any photos where the colors match exactly, but it looks like it's pretty variable.

The problem is that mine does not have bars on the blck line - but thanks.

If you look at fishbase, they show it with both a solid line and broken lines.

Thank you very much, Chowe!  You are right.   (I even thought the bars were a distinguishing feature, since the books and so many web photos, including  fishbase,  had them on this blenny.)

Chowe,

I think you are absolutely correct -- even though Allen and Steene's Reef Fish states this blenny has a "black stripe from eye to tail composed of rectangular segments," as their photo clearly shows.
