Specifications

Overview

The Bicolor Blenny is also known as the Two-colored Blenny. The Bicolor is so-named because the anterior half is blue to dull brown, and the posterior half is dull orange. Males are generally larger than females and experience a succession of color changes, including blue, when breeding. These Blennies exhibit great personality in the aquarium.

Generally found amid crevices and rocks on the bottom of its environment, the Bicolor Blenny needs a tank of at least 75 litres with scattered rocks for perching and hiding. Opinions are mixed as to whether the Bicolor Blenny is a peaceful tank member and safe for invertebrates.

Some believe the Bicolor Blenny is not safe with other species members and may pick on gobies and firefish. Others say the Bicolor Blenny is a peaceful community fish. Some say the Bicolor Blenny is safe around invertebrates and other sources say it will eat them. The best alternative is probably to combine these groups cautiously.

The diet of the Bicolor Blenny should include vegetable matter, including frozen and dried foods containing marine and blue-green algae. It will also feed on (and help control) algae growing in the aquarium.

5 stars title= An unsuspecting favourite, 8th Mar 2015

Reviewer: Carl Kirwan

I decided to get one of these guys to occupy the bottom half of my tank and didn't really look too much into the traits of these fish. Although not as colourful as many other types of marine fish, don't let that put you off purchasing one of these guys. What they may lack in vibrancy, they more than make up for it in personality. I think it's a super addition to the aquarium. They are like the "nosey neighbour" of the aquarium, finding the perfect seat to watch everything both in the aquarium and outside it. It's almost like they like to sit and watch whatever it is you've got on your tv. I've also found them to be a hardy sort and feed on all types of food right out of the acclimating period. I can't comment on how reef safe they are as I'm currently running a FOWLR tank at the minute. This will change very soon though.Certainly one of my favourite fish now, personality in abundance, you could do a lot worse than to have one of these in your tank. Recommended.
