Red Eyed Barnacle Blenny Macro

joesmoe517

This guy is so cool, and he finally made his home in the front of my tank, perfect for macro shots.

He's an ambush predator when he eats, no open water swimming, just sits back (supposed to be in a barnacle) and darts out for a piece of food and back into his spot.

He's kinda creepy looking, but cool at the same time.

I love the red eyes. They're the last thing his prey ever sees.

the clearly visible teeth are creeping me out. they're straight though. so you don't have to worry about the expense of braces.

OMG look at his teeth. What else does he eat (or should I say whom?)

 

Neat picture and neat looking fish

thanks guys! he ate anything that i dropped into the tank, literally. it was so cool to watch him ambush food as soon as it hit the water. Unfortunately he jumped in the back sump and i couldnt find him until he got stuck in the pump :(
