Eyebrow Barnacle Blenny



Eyebrow Barnacle Blenny which is often referred to as the Tube Blenny, or Reefsand Blenny is found in The Eastern Pacific, is widespread but it can be found in various locations. Originating from the tip of Baja California and the central Gulf of California; running across central to southern Mexico. The color ranges from dark brown to tan with 10-12 more dark-colored bars. The gill covers feature a large brown oval spot. A properly-constructed 30 gallon or bigger aquarium with a variety of hiding spots and plenty of rocks is an ideal environment. Eyebrow Barnacle Blenny is a highly entertaining fish since they swim as fast and furious as they can in order to steal food out of the water column while trying to avoid being eaten by other fish. The body of the fish is rarely seen since they usually live in a tiny crevice within the rock. It is an extremely vigilant fish that is constantly looking around the aquarium in anticipation of food.   The Eyebrow Barnacle is best in aquariums with many crevices in rocks to conceal itself. The diet should consist of meaty foods like small pieces of crustacean flesh that have been finely chopped as well as vitamin-rich frozen brine, and mysis shrimp.   Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 3/4" to 1-1/4" Medium: 1-1/4" to 2-1/4"

Helpful Questions From Clients
Frequently Asked Questions
Is hiring a professional necessary to set up a saltwater aquarium?

As a general rule, a larger custom aquarium might require installation by a professional. However, a kit from our online fish store is relatively affordable and beginner friendly. That means you should have no problem setting it up yourself.

Which saltwater aquarium fish should you choose when starting out?

Consider a yellow tang fish. This popular saltwater aquarium fish does a great job of coexisting with other types of fish you’ll find in our online fish store.

How does a saltwater aquarium differ from a freshwater one?

Saltwater aquariums require a bit more maintenance and monitoring than freshwater tanks. Different fish require different levels of salinity, pH tolerances, and temperature requirements. They also require specialized pumps, filters, and other equipment that can handle salt. We can guide you through everything you need to know to set up a healthy, thriving reef tank.

Do fish in a saltwater aquarium swim in a school?

That depends on the species. However, if it’s a fish that swims in a school in the wild, they’ll do the same in an aquarium. Some fish that swim in schools include the green and blue chromis, cardinalfish, and dartfish, for example. When ordering from an online fish store, make sure you do your research on how specific fish species behave to ensure they’ll school (or at least coexist) with your current fish.

Is the effort required to maintain a saltwater aquarium worth it?

Yes! Many aquarists dream of owning thriving saltwater aquariums. You have a tiny piece of the ocean in your home, featuring magical and exotic fish that can only survive in saltwater.
