What is he??

I told the LFS I wanted an algae eater and they sold me this guy a couple of weeks ago but I forgot what they told me he was and I can't find anything similar in the identification charts. Thanks for your help!!

It's some sort of blenny, sailfin maybe...it's not a common algae blenny, but it's similar.

Actually elise, he looks very healthy in the tank, he just has a big head and an elongated body. That's what makes him so interesting to watch, that and his horns\antennae.

I found something that matchs the body shape and finnage quite well but lets see if the color morphs at all once the fish is settled. Try a google for Entomacrodus Vermiculatus

Cheers
Steve
