      Scientific Name: Ecsenius lividanalis
      Max. size: 5.0 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; marine
      Climate: tropical
      Distribution: Western Pacific = Philippines, Indonesia, Northern Australia, Papua New Guinea, and the Solomon Islands.
      Morphology: Two forms = the true species has a yellow body, blue head and yellow iris; the dusky form (rarely all yellow), with pale blue-white iris, yellow back and tail. Both forms share a black anal spot and have similar meristics.
      Biology: In Papua New Guinea, various individuals were seen swimming around large coral heads on reef slopes and would not rest on the corals like those seen in Indonesia. Its seems that the Indonesian and Philippines form represents a new species.
      Aquarium Care: Provide plenty of live rock for hiding and perching. The Black and Yellow Blenny is generally peaceful, but may be territorial to fish of the same or similar species. May nip Tridacnid clams and stony corals. Keep one per tank.
