The Black Combtooth Blenny (Ecsenius Namiyei) - also known as Namive's Blenny, Tribal Blenny or Yellowtail Black Blenny - isn't often seen in the hobby. Combtooth Blennies are named for their distinctive fine teeth - about 100! - embedded in their lips rather than their jaw.
A small secretive blenny with a dark brown to charcoal grey body, a pale greyish to yellow tail, and with or without pale lines and spots on the head and body. It grows to a size of 11 cm in length.
Generally found amid crevices and rocks on the bottom of its environment, the Black Combtooth Blenny needs a tank of at least 30 gallons with plenty of scattered live rock for perching and hiding. Namiye's Combtooth Blenny usually props on corals and sponges, darting in to crevices and holes when disturbed. Useful for controlling microalgae on live rock and corals, these reef-safe herbivores pack plenty of personality, darting from perch to perch among the rockwork.
A generally peaceful Blenny that may be territorial towards other conspecifics. Should not be kept with any aggressive tankmates. This fish is reef-safe.
The diet of the Black Combtooth 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.
