Scientific Name: Salarias Fasciatus
Common Names: Lawnmower Blenny, Algae Blenny, Jeweled Blenny, Sailfin Blenny
Maximum Length: 5.1 in (13 cm)
Minimum Aquarium Size: 55 gal (208 L)
Aquarium Suitability: Generally Durable & Hardy
Foods & Feeding: Herbivore: Vegetable Matter, Marine Algae & Spirulina. Does best if a crop of Microalgae is present in the tank.
Reef Compatibility: May Nip at Stony Corals & Clam Mantles. Will stir up the sand when feeding.
Captive Care: What a great utility fish to help clean up many sorts of Algae you will find in most aquariums. These guys are a lot of fun to watch and have great personalities as they perch on rock work. Note that these fish will starve without an established tank that doesn’t provide sufficient Algae. Most Blenny species don’t tolerate other Blennies (or fish of the same shape) in the tank and Lawnmower Blennies are no exception to this rule. Keep singly, unless in a large System or a Male-Female pair. NEVER keep with Seahorses or Pipefish.
