Eel?

Images: 

Coral Pillars, Roatan, August 2, 2011

Depth, not sure, but we stayed shallow on these dives, so probably not more than 30-40 feet.

I realize pictures aren't very good, so if you can't ID, I understand!

Thanks!

Redlip Blenny

Redlip Blenny, Ophioblennius atlanticus. I can see how one might be mistaken for an eel, they definitely have a more sinuous swim stroke than most blennies.

Oh thanks! Great job on such

Oh thanks! Great job on such an obscure picture.  I know redlip blennies when I see them, but my own picture was so bad to me I couldn't ID it from the picture!  These were some pictures I took and somehow forgot to label.  Thanks again!
