I'll be honest, I don't know what that fish it. What I do know is that it is not a lawnmower blenny. Lawnmower blennys are also refered to as sailfin blennys, algae blennys, etc. But when you look at them they have a long fin along their back and their face has "horns" on it, giving it a face that looks like a horse almost. That guy has a very small fin and the face just isn't right.

No, it is. I was looking at it oddly on my phone. Total lawnmower, sorry. Mine is aghressive, but not enough to go after me.
