Ember Blenny



 Thumbnail

The Ember Blenny is also known as the Red-streaked Blenny, or Scarlet-spotted Blenny. The males are generally larger than the females and experience a succession of color changes when breeding.

It requires a well-established tank of at least 40 gallons or larger with plenty of scattered rocks for perching and hiding, and live rock with microalgae growth on which to feed. Unlike most blennies, the Ember Blenny requires a meaty diet including finely chopped crustacean flesh, mysis and vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, along with frozen herbivorous preparations, micro and blue-green algae. If housing more than one Ember Blenny in an aquarium, it is best to acclimate them at the same time. Otherwise, aggression between the two may occur.
