I know, I know - I'm a terrible photographer, and he is a very camera shy fishy!
I also posted this on ReefCentral, and they led
me to the answer - he's a Sandhopper Blenny (Parapercis sp.) (Info on LiveAquaria
), or otherwise known as a red-stripe sand perch.
He is an active little guy, I'll tell you what - and has no problems eating! We are going to have him in QT for a while, and he loves the little PVC
house in there!
I have a question - how is that you QT certain fish that have very special diets (eg, mandarin dragonet)? I'm all about doing what's right for the fish, but doesn't that pose a threat to the health of the fish? Just curious...
Thank you everyone for the help!
