The Ecsenius spp. blennies are my favorite!
Their whimsical faces are just the best!
If I had to chose just one species, it would be the Pictus (White-lined) Blenny. Years ago when I was setting up a smaller reef, I sent a short list of 5-6 Ecsenius spp. blennies to Kevin Kohen that I hoped he could find for me; as none of them were really available at the time. He mentioned that E. pictus was on the collection lists but no one ever really brought them in as the Bicolor and Midas Blennies were so popular. Once he brought in the Pictus Blennies for me, they've been available to this day.
I do enjoy keeping the Midas Blenny as well; especially for their mimicry of Lyretail Anthias.

Kevin Kohen is the best!
He has a real heart for the hobby.
Regal Angels were in short supply one year when I was stocking my tank. The Regal was my dream fish for the tank.
Finally after looking for months, I sent him an email. He put me in contact with one of his managers. Thanks to him I acquired my Regal, that I have to this day!
Beautiful photo btw!
