Blogie Robillo ID pls for this blenny? Spotted it in less than 5m of water

Kati Burg Maybe Salarias fasciatus. We find them in shallow waters near the shore.

Lee Goldman or the Ceram Blenny (Salarias ceramensis). Also found in similar habitats and ranges at about the same size as the Jewelled Blenny. I'm going with this because of the random and variable-sized spots and lack of distinct bars (with spots in them) along the side which is a pattern associated with the Jewelled Blenny.

Blogie Robillo Thanks Kathrin and Lee! Yup, I think it's the Ceram Blenny. :)
