Description

A very colorful blenny that stays toward the bottom of the tank by the rocks. It will go under the rocks to hide and for protection. Will eat food out of the water column and off of the rocks. Should be kept with peaceful fish, may fight with others of its own kind. They have fangs that they will use to bite off pieces of food from rocks and may nip corals, so you need to be careful.
