Natural History: The Algae Blenny is found among rocky substrates on reef flats and shallow lagoons, as well as estuaries. It is most common in areas with high algae densities.
Husbandry: The Algae Blenny feeds on algae film and hair algae. It scrapes the algae and detritus off of rocks. It may be aggressive with members of its own species but tolerates other species very well in a community tank. It should be provided live rock to provide the algae needed to supplement its diet.
