Post Number:#1  Postby fl33066 » Thu Oct 11, 2012 6:46 am

Hello divers,
I am going through my photos from Sipadan, and I can't ID the following fish.  I hope someone can help me with it.
Thanks!

it is Diademichthys lineatus or common name urchin clingfish.
It seek refuge within the spine of sea urchins to avoid predators.
