Spotted blenny

Guardian: Max Twist

Ecsenius stictus

These blennies are a part of the mini-world of the reef. They have lost or almost lost their swim bladders and their fins have evolved to steady them as they rest on the bottom. They spend most of their lives on the dead part one big boulder coral, find a partner, raise children (look after eggs until they hatch) and if you look closely, they are everywhere.
