Overview

The ORA® Captive-Bred Canary Blenny is also known as the Oualan Forktail Blenny, or Canary Fang Blenny. The ORA® Captive-Bred Canary Blenny is aptly named, being a solid vibrant yellow. Males are generally larger than females and experience a succession of color changes when breeding.

This blenny needs a minimum tank size of 30 gallons with reef rock for hunting and grazing in order to thrive. It is best to keep only one per tank unless a breeding pair is maintained. If attacked by other fish, the ORA® Captive-Bred Canary Blenny will retaliate by biting the inside of the mouth of the attacker. The ORA® Captive-Bred Canary Blenny is considered venomous and should be kept only with caution around children having tank access since it may perceive fingers as an attacker and deliver a similarly painful bite.

The diet of the Canary Blenny should consist of finely chopped crustacean flesh, mysis and vitamin-enriched brine shrimp as well as frozen herbivore preparations.

Approximate Purchase Size: 1-1/2"
