Husbandry

Rosenblatt & McCosker, 1988

Very special thanks for the first two photos of Acanthemblemaria stephensi to Dr. Ross Robertson, Australia.

He has taken the photos at Malpelo Island, Colombia in the Eastern Pacific where the barnacle blenny lives reef-associated in empty barnacles and worm or mollusk tubes on rocky reefs in crevices and deep recesses in the rocks.

The blenny is considered to be locally common at Malpelo Island, the fish lives endemic here.
