Emblemariopsis bottomeiis commonly referred to as Southern Smoothhead Glass Blenny, Shorthead Blenny. Difficulty in the aquarium: There are no reports available yet that this animal has already been kept in captivity successfully. Toxicity: Toxic hazard unknown.
In the waters around the ABC islands, the small blenny Emblemariopsis bottomei appears to occupy a range of depths and most hard or sponge substrates.
In Bonaire, photos show males in the terminal phase in holes in live and dead corals as well as in sponges.
Fish in the initial phase are found on live corals and sponges, but also on dead corals and encrusting substrates.
The depth range is broad and extends to at least 60 m, with no particular peak of occurrence.
Particularly striking is a very different appearance of the animals, this seems to be the case for all developmental stages.
