    Hey guys

    I was wondering if anyone knew why there seems to be two different colours for the tailspot blenny? Are they two different species of them / collected at different locations or / male - female thing...?

    If you look at the neon lines by the face, they are even different colours.

    Thanks

    It could be a variety of things, i.e. as you stated, male or female, collected from different oceans, juvenile and adult colours, or something as simple as a photo taken without flash and one taken with flash, that alone can produce vastly different looking fish, albeit the same fish. You would have to do some research into it to find out more.
