The Flametail Blenny is an interesting bottom dweller that will spend much of its time perched on the sand or lower rocks. It is generally a peaceful fish, however it may behave aggressively towards firefish, gobies and other smaller blennies.

Although it may occasionally nip at select LPS and SPS corals, the Flametail Blenny rarely causes any real damage to corals or invertebrates. Providing plenty of live rock with microalgae for it to graze on should keep it pre-occupied. This useful herbivore will help to keep you aquarium looking its best.

The Flametail Blenny will graze over the live rock in the aquarium eating algae. You can supplement its diet with live macro algae, such as Macro Feast, and dry seaweed 1-2 times per week. Try using a rubber-band to attach the algae to a small rock or pvc pipe and place it in the sand bed.

Ruber-banding algae to bit of tonga branch rock looks the most natural and will stay in place the best.

Soaking all fish food (even algae) with vitamins will help keep your fish healthier and make them less susceptible to disease. We recommend soaking food in garlic as well when adding new fish and whenever your notice ich or other disease in the aquarium. Garlic will help repel external parasites and will boost the fishes immunity.
