The Tail Spot Blenny's defining feature is the dark spot at the base of its tail. A black and yellow band runs below each eye, aiding them in blending into their surroundings.
They are a smaller blenny with very large eyes, and small mouth giving these fish a very comical look. Generally found amid crevices and rocks on the bottom of its environment.
Tail Spot Blennies are great fish for smaller tanks.
They are extremely peaceful and easy to take care of while only demanding a tank size of around ten gallons to meet its needs.
They can grow up to around 2 1/2 inches. These blennies have a very unique look and coloration.
They have very big eyes for their smaller bodies and have an even smaller mouth.
They like to hangout in crevices and rocks where they can perch or hide.
If they are housed with a more aggressive fish it is possible that they will be forced to hide the majority of the time.
To keep these fish it is a great idea to have a decent amount of liverock so that they are able to graze on the algae and also be given plenty of places to hide.
In smaller tanks they can help keep algae in check, but in larger systems since they are so small they might have a hard time keeping up.
They usually will accept a variety of foods in which vegetable matter or algae should be present.
These are great fish that are fun to watch and a joy to have within your aquarium.
