The Tailspot Blenny, Ecsenius stigmatura, has a black and yellow band just below the eye and featuring a black spot on the tail. They are hardy and can be housed with other peaceful fish in a reef tank setting, but may become territorial towards other blennies, gobies or dartfish in smaller tanks.

Blennnies are known for their incredible jumping abilities, so having a tightly secured lid is suggested. Diet should include a variety of mysis shrimp and vitamin enriched brine shrimp as well as spirulina, marine algae, seaweed and algae based foods 2-3 times daily.

Really cool, fish loves to hide in the live rock! Color took a couple days to develop after shipping, gorgeous!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
