Leopard Blenny - Exallias brevis: The Leopard Blenny is also referred to as the Leopard Rockskipper, Shortbodied Blenny, Sailfin Blenny, or Honeycomb Blenny. The body is white with a mottling of brown.

A 50 gallon or larger reef aquarium with small-polyped stony corals as a food source is ideal. It is territorial over its food source, and will usually find a crevice close by to defend its food source from members of its own species or other food competitors.

It is difficult to entice the Leopard Blenny to eat in an aquarium, and therefore, should only be kept by very experienced aquarists who can supply its special diet of stony coral polyps. It may begin to eat occasional frozen herbivore preparations, vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, or mysid shrimp. If it does, it should be fed three times per day.The Leopard Blenny has a fringe of cirri running across the nape and a branched tentacle above both eyes. This species is white with small spots on the head, body and fins. The spots are brown in females and juveniles. Males have brown spots on the head and abdomen but red spots on the rest of the body. The dorsal and caudal fins of males are usually red. The Leopard Blenny grows to 14cm in length. It eats coral polyps.

Leopard Blenny is found on coral reefs throughout the Indo-Pacific. In Australia it is recorded from the central coast of Western Australia around the tropical north of the country and south to southern Queensland. Doesn't eat prepared foods well in captivity, but will eat corals.
