General: The Fringe Lipped Blenny (Salarias sinuosus) naturally occupies intertidal reefs within the Pacific, and Indian Oceans, as well as Australian marine ecosystems. The Fringe Lipped Blenny will reach a length of three inches, is considered to be "reef safe", and should be kept in an aquarium larger than 29 gallons. This Blenny is typically a peaceful marine fish species that should be added after having "cycled" a new aquarium. The Fringe Lipped Blenny may also be kept with another, as long as it is of opposite gender. Otherwise, it may be difficult to keep multiple Blennies together in small spaces.

Aquarium Diet: The Fringe Lipped Blenny are naturally herbivorous, primarily consuming various species of algae. Ideally, the aquarium should be consistently supplied with macroalgae to ensure a food source for the Blenny.
