OK i justlooked it up for ya. I think you have a Gosline's Fangblenny, AKA Sabertooth Fangblenny, Plagiostremus goslinei
and they feed on the skin, flesh, scales, and fins of larger fish.

we see something identical on our collecting trips called a striped fang blennie.

They have a bit of a nasty bite to them,they have drawn blood on me before.

i have kept them before and with good feeding,they were no trouble.
