Eye Striped Blennies sit on rocks and will go under them from time to time for cover. They’ll eat food out of the water column and also off of rocks. They have fangs that they will use to bit pieces of food off of rocks and may nip at corals, so you need to be careful. Should be kept with peaceful fish; may fight with others of its own kind.
