Hi Gems.I should have said,

Hi Gems.

I should have said, the colouration of this species is highly variable and changes quite quickly depending on the backround colour they are resting on. The slightly larger fish to the top right appears to be the same species though the white barbels arent obvious on that one, it looks like anothe T. bubalis. Very common in rockpools.

Or is that other one just a common blenny? Fins maybe not as big or patterned as what they should be on a TB.
