In the tank, blennies take shelter within rocks and crevices. They are curious, active fish and enjoy moving from rock to rock nibbling on micro algae in between feedings. Underfed blennies have been known to pick at the mantles of clams and at some corals, so caution should be exercised when adding them to a smaller reef aquarium.
