    42694d2b007d9ab35.jpg We saw these fish at the Coast of Kwazulu Natal, Margate. Please can you identify it if possible. Sorry for the bad quality photos. It's the best we could take. 42694d2b00682195a.jpg

    Looks like it could be a lizard fish, but I'm not 100% sure. If it is a lizard fish they are predators and usually bury themselves in the sand with just their red eyes sticking out and wait for some thing edible to swim past...

    Are they suitable for a marine aquarium? Are they aggro? or peaceful?

    Don't have experience with them. I would rather get a lawnmower blenny, they are cute little carracters and they munch away on algae, hence the name ;)
