Overview

The Two Spot Bimaculatus Blenny originates within the reefs surrounding Cebu. They are a small blenny with very large eyes, and small mouth giving these fish a very comical look. A black band covers the top half of the eyes and body aiding them in blending into their surroundings. They receive their name from the two prominent black spots on their stomach area. The Two Spot Bimaculatus Blennies are a great addition to any reef or peaceful fish only aquarium, large or small.

Generally found amid crevices and rocks on the bottom of its environment, the Two Spot Bimaculatus Blenny needs a tank of at least 10 gallons with plenty of live rock for grazing and hiding. They should not be housed with aggressive species that may intimidate these fish into hiding. They are generally peaceful towards con specifics and may be added to the aquarium in numbers at the same time

The diet of the Two Spot Bimaculatus 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: 1/2" to 1" Medium: 1" to 1-1/2"

Customer Testimonials

Adam San Diego , CA
I have a 2-spot blenny and it does fine with barnacle blennies, firefish, and a 6-line wrasse in my tank. He's busy nipping at algae during the day and when he wants to rest or sleep, he goes into his hole in a rock. He is my favorite of my fish in my 24 gallon nano tank!!!
David Flynt Palm Desert , CA
This fish is a blast to watch in my tank. I get a kick when he rides the back of my Hermit Crabs, pecking at their shells. The Two Spot is a little cutie and everyone should have one in their tank.
Julie Baldwin Coquille , OR
Perfect fit in my 12 gallon nano tank. A lot of personality. First to come out for food. By no means a bully, outgoing and visible. Would imagine he would be lost in a large tank.
