Lawn mower blennies/rock skippers, eyes up!

These guys are from the other day, this particular variant is the istiblennius meleagris, I first saw and collected one of these guys in 78.
They are at their most common in 2 inches to 3 metres of water.
Very common aquarium fish here in the SEQ and can live out of water for 1 to 4 hours, depending on humidity.
Personally I don't like them as they can get aggressive to most life in your tank and eat near on anything over time.
They are supposedly herbivores but are border line omnivores from my experience of them.
