Overview

The ORA® Captive-Bred Striped Blenny is also referred to as Gammistes Blenny, Striped Fang Blenny, or Striped Poison-Fang Blenny. The Striped Blenny ranges from the Western Pacific from Indochina to Papua New Guinea, north to the Ryukyu Islands and south to Australia. It has alternating black and yellow stripes that run the entire length of the body.

It tends to do well in an aquarium if housed in a 30 gallon or larger aquarium with live rock. The live rock provides places to hunt and feed on small crustaceans as well as places to hide. It is not usually aggressive unless the tank mates appear to have a similar shape as it does. Its fangs are more of a defense mechanism used for biting an aggressive fish back.

The ORA Captive-Bred Striped Blenny should be fed a well balance diet of carnivorous foods along with a selection of foods designed for herbivores. These fish should be offered small quantities of food several times per day. .
