Photo of the Week - Mimic Blenny

The Mimic Blenny, (Ecsenius gravieri), is a copycat of another blenny, Meiacanthus nigrolineatus that has a venomous bite and is thus more likely to be avoided by potential predators than otherwise. You can read more here: CopyCat - Black Lined Blenny and its Mimic

This blenny is very peaceful (with the exception of other blennies), hardy and doesn't require a large aquarium. Feed a couple times a day with a mix of thawed foods and protein dense pellets. Then just provide them with enough rockwork to hide in and they'll be an interesting and engaging addition to your aquarium.
