There are few fish that are as entertaining or have as much personality as the Midas Blenny. They move very eel-like by wiggling their body instead of depending on fins to swim. The reef safe Midas Blenny generally acclimates quickly to the captive environment, though they will jump if startled, so be sure to cover their aquarium. An aquarium of at least 30 gallons with a good mix of open swimming space and rockwork will make a suitable home for the life of the blenny since they only grow to be about 6". Midas' can be aggressive with similarly sized and shaped fish like dartfish and gobies (including other Midas blennies). They are omnivores and require a mixed diet which should include finely-chopped marine meaty foods and pellets. The Midas Blenny is bright yellow with blue on their eyes and dorsal fins. They are found in the Indo-Pacific inhabiting the coral reefs in moderate currents up to 40 meters deep.

Unlike most other blennies, the Midas Blenny is a more of planktivore, eating mysis shrimp, vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, and finely minced or chopped crustacean meat. Variety is a must, and can also be supplemented with herbivore specific preparations.
