The Secretary Blenny, is a special sight in the waters around Bonaire. This small but remarkable fish has a penchant for Bonaire’s warm, clear waters, where the coral reef provides an ideal habitat. These little fish, rarely larger than a few inches, have a fascinating way of life. They settle in abandoned wormholes or other small openings in the coral, where they find a safe hiding place and can be on the lookout for food. What makes the Secretary Blenny so interesting to divers and snorkelers is their behavior. They are curious and not very shy, often approaching within inches of their observers. Their vibrant colors, ranging from green, brown to yellow, camouflage them perfectly with the surrounding coral reefs, but with a little patience, observant visitors can easily spot them.
