"Parablennius gattorugine" ("Tompot Blenny") is a medium sized blenny growing to about 30cm, part of the large family of blennies who live on the seabed of rocky areas in shallow water. The fish are very inquisitive and are often seen by scuba divers.


Tompots are usually a deep brown/orange, and are distinguished by a pair of lappets(tentacles) above the eyes and seven or more darker stripes along the body.
