Secretary Blenny GALLERY 

Acanthemblemaria maria

Very similar to the Spinyhead Blenny, (Same genus) and live and generally act the same way. Both are "tube blennies" which means rather than living on the sea floor like many other blennies, they take up residence in abandoned tube worm tubes and in sponge holes. These are very tiny fish, less than an inch long. Look for them at depths of 3 feet or more. They have eyes that can turn in almost any direction. See pictures 6 and seven.
