      Scientific Name: Ecsenius gravieri
      Max. size: 8.0 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; marine
      Climate: tropical
      Distribution: Western Indian Ocean = Red Sea (including the Gulf of Aqaba) to the westernmost Gulf of Aden.
      Biology: Mimics Meiacanthus nigrolineatus (which has venomous fangs)
      Aquarium Care: Sometimes individuals may nip at LPS and clam mantles, and eat SPS. This species is harmless, as opposed to the venomous species it mimics. In established tanks containing microalgae, this fish is easy to keep. Normally ignored by tankmates, the Red Sea Mimic Blenny spends time perched, hiding in holes, or picking at substrate. Keep one per tank (unless male-female pair), as they may act aggressively to the same or similar species.
