Linear Blenny (Ecsenius lineatus)


The Linear Blenny, otherwise known as the Lined Blenny, have translucent fins. Their undersides are white in color, while their top halves are brown to black. These blennies are rather small. They have large eyes and very tiny mouths, which gives them a funny look.


It is best to house the Linear Blenny in a 30 gallon tank with live rock for perching, grazing, and hiding. These fish are rather peaceful and would do well in either reef aquariums or fish-only aquariums. To avoid stress, it is best to house them with other peaceful fish.



The diet of the Linear Blenny should include: marine algae, vegetable preparations, and frozen and dried foods.
