The Linear Blenny is a very small and cute blenny. Linear Blennies have a prominent stripe containing bars running the length of their body.
Linear Blennies reach a maximum adult size of around 4 inches and need to be kept in tanks that are at least 10 gallons in size. Linear Blennies are peaceful fish and shouldn't bother other fish, coral or inverts in the tank. This makes them a great addition to reef tanks.
Linear Blennies shouldn't be kept with larger more aggressive fish, since they are not good at defending themselves. Linear Blennies do well with other blennies and in small groups as well. Linear Blennies do best when kept in tanks with lots of live rock for them to hide in if they feel threatened and to graze on algae off of.
Linear Blennies are herbivores and require a diet that is rich in green foods. Foods like marine algae and nori sheets, high quality flake and pellet foods and high quality frozen foods will keep your Linear Blenny healthy and happy.
