Captive Care: This slinky, colorful fish makes a great addition to the tank and is one of the best blennies the hobby has to offer. Unlike most blennies, this species feeds mostly on zooplankton rather then algae. Spends its time tucked into small caves or swimming around the water column without a care as most tank mates simply leave this blenny alone. Make sure to watch these guys around firefish and other gobies as some will rip or tear fins.
