message Susan, these mediterranean blenny are called Peperoncino giallo. The yellow one is the male, the brown-red fish in the photo is a female.
I noted the two fishes "dancing" on a rock, the male moves around the wife that have a visible genital papilla ready to release the eggs. There are some other shots only of the female.
I shot this image with my Nikon D7000 and micro nikkor 105 mm. This is not the best lens for this situation, better a 60 micro or the new one micro nikkor dx40 mm.
