Blue & Gold Blenny


The Blue and Gold Blenny originate from the Indo-Pacific, and is a peaceful blenny for a community or reef aquarium. There are two color forms of Ecsenius lividanalis. One form has a blue head, yellow body and a yellow iris. The form that we are offering is referred to as the Dusky form. They are pale blue in color with a yellow dorsal fin and tail. Their iris is pale blue to white in coloration. Both variants share a common black anal spot. They are a comical addition to the marine aquarium that spends much of its time out in the open hopping and perching from one location to another.

Generally found amid crevices and rocks on the bottom of its environment, the Black and Yellow Blenny needs a tank of at least 30 gallons with plenty of scattered live rock for perching and hiding. They are generally peaceful, but may become territorial towards others within the same genus.

The diet of the Black and Yellow Blenny should include meaty items such as vitamin enriched brine and mysis shrimp, chopped fish and shrimp, and a quality flake or pellet food.
