You can't see me! ..... or can you?

I just purchased this blennie from Reef Hot Spot, it was supposed to be a starry blennie, which I've seen as black w/ white spots, but I guess there could be different variations. Anyway, it looks like I still have to play w/ the white balance and I don't know what feature on my cheap camera gets rid of the grittiness. Funny pic though:

nice pic...lol...his face looks like he is a algea blenny, but they starry blennies do change color, they arent always black and white they will change shades for brown to blend in some times. wait until he is comfortable in the tank and he should change to the black color.

looks like a regular lawnmower blenny in that pic, you'll have to get another pic in a few days. One from the side would be much easier to tell what it really is

I'm pretty sure it's a normal lawn mower, which kind of sucks since I wanted the black one, but I'm not going to send this back to get that... I'm already liking this guy!

that's not the body! that's a snail shell.. really all you can see in the pic is the end of his tail coming back out of the GSP and his head.

Sorry, his tail to the left of the snail shell is what I was referring to.
