Great Shot of very tiny subject. Don't think it is triple Fin this is Emblerariopsis sp blenny. It believe it is Emblemariopsis ruetzleri, one of the 4-6 species known in Cayman. these are the guys we photographed for Ben Victor in the winter of 2011. This version is predominately blue-green most of the others are reddish. Males are black when ready to mate and species are commonly referred to collectively as "Blackhead Blennies"
