The Bundoon Blenny is an excellent addition to any reef aquarium, as it is hardy and easy to care for. A minimum tank of 30 gallons with live rock is necessary for optimal health and behavior, as the Bundoon Blenny will hunt and graze among the rock. It is generally recommended to keep only one per aquarium, unless a breeding pair is being maintained. Furthermore, providing the Blenny with plenty of hiding places will help decrease its stress levels and contribute to its overall well-being. Lastly, the Bundoon Blenny is an incredibly active species, and its presence will add a great deal of life and activity to any reef tank.
The Bundoon Blenny is a hardy and undemanding fish, making it an ideal choice for both novice and experienced aquarists. It is a peaceful, reef-safe fish and will not bother invertebrates and corals. However, it can be aggressive and can bite back if provoked. As such, it should be kept with caution, especially if children have access to the aquarium, as its bites can be painful. Additionally, the Bundoon Blenny may perceive fingers as an attacker and deliver a similarly painful bite. For this reason, it is important to take all necessary safety precautions when handling this species.
The diet should consist of finely chopped crustacean flesh, mysis, and vitamin-enriched brine shrimp. These ingredients provide nutrients and help to maintain a healthy balance of gut flora.
