Greek Name: Salarias segmentatus

$35.99

-

The Segmented Sailfin Blenny is also known as the Segmented Blenny. The body of the blenny is vertically striped or segmented by different bands of reddish and yellow Tan. This blenny displays a lot of individuality in the aquarium and is an excellent choice for anyone from a beginner to an experienced aquarist.
A solidly established 30 gallon or bigger aquarium that has multiple levels of swimming and lots of rocks is an ideal setting. The Segmented Blenny is not typically aggressive, unless the tank mates seem to share a similar design as the Segmented Blenny. It is best to keep the blenny in a single tank unless it is kept in an aquarium that is larger and the two species are a couple. It is known to climb up and move between rocks looking for microalgae that it can feed on.

 

The Segmented Blenny is the perfect option for a reef aquarium. It is reef-safe but can nibble at the polyps and the bases of Acropora sp. as well as others SPS corals. If the SPS dominating aquarium is not well-stocked with mature colonies, these fish could harm Acropora sp. along with Montipora sp.

 

The Segmented Sailfin Blenny thrives best in aquariums that are well-established and have huge amounts of algae that it can consume. Its diet should be supplemented by vegetable matter, Spirulina, and herbivore preparations.
