Also known as the Jeweled Rockskipper, Sailfin Blenny, or the Rock Blenny. Lawnmower Blennies are found from East Africa and the Red Sea to Samoa and the Islands of Micronesia. They are hardy members of the Blenniidae family. They have a mottled appearance that consists of bands, stripes, and spots in hues of brown, green, and cream. Their color patterns typically help them to blend into the reef substrate. They also have little lines and spots of light blue, giving them a jeweled appearance. The Lawnmower Blenny grows up to 5 inches long and does best in well-established aquariums with adequate algae to feed on. They require an aquarium of at least 30 gallons.
Blennies, along with other fish, corals and invertebrates will also benefit greatly from Live Phytoplankton which is readily available to them in the wild.
