The Golden Tiger Blenny, Escenius sp., has a striking white and orange/tan striping pattern which lend its name of "tiger". They are hardy and can be housed with other peaceful fish in a reef tank setting, but may become territorial towards other blennies, gobies or dartfish in smaller tanks.
This blenny is known as a rock skipper and has incredible jumping abilities, so having a tightly secured lid is suggested. Diet should include a variety of spirulina, marine algae, seaweed and algae based foods 2-3 times daily.
