BLENNY, REDLIP/"DEVILFISH"

Ophioblennius atlanticus atlanticus

This black wriggly fish can be seen moving around, or sitting still on the rocks resting on their blue edged fins. They have red eyes, some pink on the underside, and the red spots under their fins can be seen when they move. Some larger (15cm) ones had brown or grey blotchy patterns on their faces.
