Bicolour Blennies are peaceful fish but have been known to pick at smaller gobies, dart fish and other Blennies.
Bicolour Blennies are herbivores so their diet should consist of vegetable matter including frozen and dried marine and blue-green algae. Blennies will feed off algae in the tank so incorporating mature live rock with algae growth is recommended.
Bicolour Blennies require a minimum tank size of 115L. They generally swim around the bottom of the tank and hide among crevices and rocks. They can be incorporated into reef tank with caution that the tank is not too small and that they are not underfed as they will pick at clams and corals.
