The Midas Blenny (Ecsenius midas), also known as the Golden Blenny or Sunburst Blenny, originates from the Indo-Pacific region, favoring rocky or coral-rich habitats. With a size reaching 4 to 5 inches and a lifespan of several years, it boasts an elongated body transitioning from light orange to golden yellow, accentuated by sapphire blue eyes. This herbivorous species requires a varied diet of marine algae sheets, spirulina-based pellets, and occasional fresh or frozen vegetables. While generally peaceful, it may exhibit territorial behavior towards similar-looking fish. Compatible tank mates include Dottybacks, Fairy Wrasses, Anthias, Hawkfish, and Tangs. Captive-bred specimens are readily available, offering adaptability and resilience. To thrive, the Midas Blenny requires a well-established aquarium with plenty of live rock for hiding spots and algae growth, along with adequate lighting. The Midas Blenny adds vibrancy and charm to saltwater marine aquariums, becoming a focal point of admiration with proper care and a suitable environment.

Compatible Tank Mates Include: Dottybacks (e.g., Bicolor Dottyback), Fairy Wrasses (e.g., Lubbock's Fairy Wrasse), Anthias (e.g., Dispar Anthias), Hawkfish (e.g., Flame Hawkfish), Tangs (e.g., Naso Tang)
