|Blennies are generally considered
to be intertidal fishes; that is, they live in the zone
consisting of only a few feet of water between high and
low tide. Creatures that live in the intertidal zone must
withstand greater variations in their surroundings, such
as temperature, salinity, sunlight, and even wave action.
Their turbulent environment may explain why blennies tend
to be small (this one is about 1.5 inches long), live on
the bottom, and seek the protection of holes, crevices,
tubes, or depressions.
