  Blennies (Blenniidae), subfamily Blenniinae
Aspidontus taeniatus, the False cleaner fish, is named 'false' for a good reason.
It copies the behaviour and appearance of Labroides dimidiatus. However, instead of removing parasites and dead skin from larger fish, it bites off pieces of fins and scales of its victims.
