I recently purchased a fish that the pet store told me was a "Lawnmower Blenny" When I googled my new fish, I was surprised to see a different looking fish than what I had swimming around in y tank. I'm hoping someone could tell me what my new aquarium tenent is?

Thank you, image.jpg

Looks like some kind of Filefish. This is why it's always best to research fish before you buy them, and not rely on information from retailers.

Thank you Hampalong, That helps a lot. Now begins my detective work on which kind of file fish it is.

If you have LPS;s in your tank be careful I had a Matted Filefish and he almost killed my show quality Brain Coral by tearing the flesh off it. Took me a week to get the coral to open back up after removing the Filefish from the tank.
