This timid species of fish, the Tail Spot Blenny, is generally found hiding among crevices and rocks on the bottom of their environment. In order to ensure their health and wellbeing, they should be kept in an aquarium of at least 10 gallons with plenty of live rock for grazing, perching, and hiding. To promote stress-free living, it is best to avoid housing them with aggressive species that may be intimidating to these timid fish. Furthermore, providing plenty of places for the Tail Spot Blenny to hide will help them feel secure and content.

The Tail Spot Blenny is an ideal aquarium fish, as its diet consists of both vegetable matter and algae. The frozen and dried foods containing marine and blue-green algae provide an excellent source of nutrition for the fish. By controlling the growth of algae in the aquarium, this species helps to maintain a balance in the tank. Moreover, their active swimming and peaceful nature adds a vibrant and dynamic element to your aquarium.

The approximate purchase size for small, medium, and large purchase options are 3/4″, 1″, and 1-1/2″, respectively.
