Golden Midas- Midas Blenny
The aquarium must have proper caves and hiding places, and the presence of live rocks and sandy substrates are indispensable in your fish tank. The Midas Blenny mostly inhabits rocky areas with plenty of crevices and corals around, so it should be housed in a tank with plenty of live rock. It is best to house in a pair together and should never be kept with aggressive fish or large predators. It loves to sift through the sand in search of food and with its pointed mouth it can easily catch the micro fauna.The Midas Blenny breeds by laying adhesive eggs on the substrate. Its odd undulating swimming motion makes this fish seem comical and endearing. The Midas Blenny is also known to hide with its head exposed checking out the rest of the tank. It is considered a good jumper, so we advise you to keep it in a closed tank.
