The blenny pics posted above are two seperate species. While a fish may take to prepared foods, I can assure you it is not the norm. They are not omnivors by nature but by need. I can assure you they are herbavors. Some adapt, most don't. You have no idea how many posts I've answered where the fish starves simpley from this missunderstanding. While it's great they may be trainable but it should definately not be relied upon as a certainty.

Point taken, the info at wetwebmedia is instructive, thanks.
There's loads of kiss marks on my glass, can only be him, he's a little less timid now and looks in fine fettle, I'm figuring that he if he looks happy and bolder after a week there's hope yet.
He's a cute guy and I'd hate him to starve; has anyone any suggestions as to what I might tempt him with, if there's not enough natural algae?

I thought Maurice2's looked like a sailfin, wondered if since it was a juvenile it just looked different. Steve, am I correct?
Let's get a line wet!

Not sure, they are the same genus but could be different species. Your's (got bait) I'm not too sure on, I would need to see a better full profile shot. Maurice2 is a Salarias fasciatus.
