That would be a scooter blenny. They are a difficult to keep fish as they are dragonettes. These guys eat constantly and have a diet almost strictly on pods. They eat thousands a day. Without an amazing source of pods in the tank itself, these fish wither away from starvation. This takes a long time to occur, leading many to believe that they have been 'successful' for a period of time.
