overview
The Brachiosaurus Blenny is an exciting new addition to the aquarium trade, generating buzz among hobbyists. It is easy to see how this blenny received its common name as the male Brachiosaurus Blenny sports a pronounced fleshy crest that gives it a distinct dinosaurian appearance. If that wasn't enough to capture your imagination, the male Brachiosaurus Blenny also sports very exotic-looking finnage (most notable is the sail-like dorsal fin) that enhances the "prehistoric" appearance of this buzz-worthy blenny.

The Brachiosaurus Blenny is endemic to Australia occurring in shallow estuarine waters and intertidal mudflats. The Brachiosaurus Blenny is often associated with oyster beds, using the empty shells for habitat and for nesting. Harvested from shallow water, the Brachiosaurus Blenny adapts well to aquariums that are maintained around 75 degrees. To recreate habitat for the Brachiosaurus Blenny, provide a tank of at least 30 gallons with plenty of scattered rubble, empty shells and live rock full of nooks, crannies and caves for perching and hiding. The Brachiosaurus Blenny is peaceful towards other fish unless the tank mate is similar in shape or appearance to the blenny. Blennies generally make a good addition to reef aquariums, but use caution in smaller set ups, or with smaller fleshy corals, as individuals may pick at the mantles of clams, and at fleshy large polyp stony corals when underfed.

The diet of the Brachiosaurus 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.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 2-1/4"; Medium: 2-1/4" to 3-1/2"; Large: 3-1/2" to 4-3/4"
