The Tailspot Blenny, Ecsenius stigmatura , also known as the Tail Spot Blenny, features a characteristic dark spot at the base of its tail amidst its beautiful orange and blue body, and a black and yellow band runs below each eye. They have large eyes outlined by yellow bands and small mouths. They can grow to be 2.5 inches and should be kept in a tank no less than 10 gallons if kept individually, and no less than 30 gallons if kept in a pair. The Tailspot Blenny enjoys grazing on algae found growing naturally in the tank, and loves hanging out in the crevices created by live rock work and are often easy to locate. We suggest keeping plenty of live rock in the tank, to help the Tailspot Blenny feel more at home. Like many other Blennies, the Tailspot Blenny can be a beneficial tank member in helping with algae control. They are a peaceful species and should be kept with other peaceful tank mates. They will graze on algae but also should be supplemented with other herbivore preparations that should include vegetable matter, including frozen and dried foods containing marine and blue-green algae. They will thrive in a temperature range of 72-78° F and a pH of 8.1-8.4.
Super entertaining to watch. Mine loves to perch in my zoas and sleep in a old snail shell. I worried it wouldn't see it much, but that is certainly not the case. He/She is always at the front of the tank. Arrived on time, and mostly unstressed, was eating spirulina algae pellets by Day 3.
I would agree with the other reviewer that they are super entertaining to watch. Mine likes to hang out in barnacle and explore the area. Not as colorful as the photo, but maybe he/she will get more colorful over time. Loves frozen food and I think eats flake as well. Good at cleaning up the tiny pieces other fish miss.
I ordered two. One has an issue from travel but the other is doing fine. They stick next to each other. The stock photo should be updated. They do not look like this but are definitely very cute. They also change colors!
The Tailspot Blenny is an interesting species it's enjoyable to watch this fish. All my order was delivery in great shape and or still looking and doing great.
Awesome little guy. Has made his home in a large empty shell in the front of the tank. Love watching him pop his head out and run around for a minute and dive back into the shell.
Really cool, fish loves to hide in the live rock! Color took a couple days to develop after shipping, gorgeous!
