Goldline Blenny

Malacoctenus aurolineatus

The Goldline Blenny has several looks. The one thing to look for is the wide gold band at mid-body. They seem to be almost everywhere. In depths of just a few feet and deeper. They have red eyes and often, perhaps based on the sex, what looks like a white nose and eye "horns". they can be pale or dark, but always have the yellow/creamy colored body band. Their chins, lips and lower jaw have dark markings over pale creamy base. They are easy to get rather close to if you move slowly toward them as they perch on their ventral fins.
