I only knew it because I almost bought one from the local seafood market, and the kelp greenlings look very similar in body structure.
In my opinion this is a severely overlooked fish when it comes to home aquariums.

It would appear so, they look like a cool fish. I'll have to make a profile on it. Do you think you could take a couple of good pictures of one for me?

By the way, I think it's your turn now. Wink

Indeed it is my turn.

I tried to get a good picture of something from my tank, but it wasn't cooperating. So I'll just host a couple photos I had already took earlier.

One fish , and one Invert for you all to ID Very Happy

Hint on the fish, its a juvenile specimen, good luck Wink

Nope Very Happy

This is a free swimming, schooling fish, photo I took is of a juvenile. It took me weeks to figure out what they were Laughing

I'll try and snap a more current photo of them in my new tank.

I updated the pics of the fish in my tank, they all ended up being out of focus.

So here's a picture of a slightly older one, hopefully this pic helps in the ID Very Happy
