Blennies

Algae_blenny.jpg

Blennies are rich in personality.  They are typically bottom dwellers, with some being peaceful and some more aggressive, some reclusive and others more outgoing, some herbivores and others omnivores or even carnivores.  They can be territorial, and have been known to pick on other blennies, smaller gobies, and dartfish.  Provide plenty of live rock.  Combtooth Blennies have around 100 teeth embedded in their lips, which are used to scrape algae off rocks and aquarium glass.   However, hervivorous Blennies might nip on fleshy corals and clam mantles when underfed.  Finally, the Fang Blennies, of the Meiacanthus genus, have a painful and venomous bite.

 

Some Blennies are hervibores which should be fed frozen and dried foods for herbivores (containing spirulina and other marine algae).  They will also forage for microalgae growing within the aquarium, and should be kept in an established aquarium with microalgae growth.  However, Midas Blennies, Fang Blennies, and Yellowtail Black Blennies are omnivores and should be fed frozen mysis shrimp, finely chopped seafood, as well as frozen herbivore preparations.  While Eyebrow Barnacle Blennies and Panamic Barnacle Blennies are carnivores, and should be fed finely chopped meaty foods.

Hi, Starry Blenny can hit up to 6.5" in captivity. Mine grew from ~4.5" to 6.5" in almost ~3 years. 🙂

 

Also, you forgot the Pictus blenny! :sad:

Thank you for the update, and thank you for increasing the min. tank size for the starry blenny. These guys can be quite territorial as they get older & larger, and a 40G+ would definitely be better for them. 👍

There's also the flametail blenny. Mine was always out in the open but really territorial. Killed a cherub angel and royal gramma. When the gramma died I didn't notice it right away, got an ammonia spike, which killed the flametail...how ironic🙄

 

I currently have a two spot blenny. Really small but such personnality. Tank has a springeri damsel, and when I added the blenny it nipped the damsel when it got too close 😏

Yeah, some of the larger species of blennies can be bullies at time. They do have a lot of personality though, which is why I like blennies in general. 🙂
