Segmented Sailfin Blenny



 Thumbnail

The Segmented Sailfin Blenny is also referred to as the Segmented Blenny. Its body is vertically striped, or segmented with alternating bands of yellow and reddish tan. This blenny shows tons of personality in the aquarium and is a great addition for the novice to experienced aquarist.

A well-established 30 gallon or larger aquarium with multiple swimming levels and plenty of rock is a suitable environment. The Segmented Blenny is not usually aggressive unless the tank mates appear to have a similar shape as it does. It is best to house singly unless kept in a larger tank and the two are a mated pair. It tends to perch and hop from rock to rock looking for microalgae to graze on. It is known to nip at small-polyped stony coral and clam mantles.

The Segmented Sailfin Blenny does best in well-established aquariums with large amounts of natural algae to feed on. The diet can be supplemented with vegetable matter, Spirulina, and herbivore preparations.
