Also known as Persian blenny. Diet: Plankton
Max. Size: 13 cm Fun Fact: The appendages scattered across a blenny’s head are called cirri and vary from simple stalks to feathery, multibranched tufts. Although a prominent feature on most blennies, the exact purpose of these structures is not known. During its orange-yellow phase, it has been observed schooling with Pseudanthias squamipinnis which it resembles in colour. Individuals of Ecsenius midas can change colour quickly to match the colours of the fishes it mixes with.
