WhyReef - Lifestyle

You can find the jeweled blenny wherever there is algae and seaweed, usually near coral or sandy areas. It will fight to protect its home! It doesn’t share its home with other blennies, and it will chase them away if they come too close. It is also very protective of its young; girl blennies lay eggs and then leave them to the boys blennies to guard until after they hatch!
