Canary Blenny

  • Meiacanthus Blennies are also known as Fang Blennies and should be added to well established aquariums with plenty of swim room.

  • Rock work should be provided for perching, hiding and grazing.

  • Meiacanthus Blennies are considered to be easy and peaceful however, can become territorial to other fish resembling their shape.

  • If sufficient algae is not present supplement with algae based foods and algae matter.

  • Males tend to be larger than females and experience color changes during breeding.

  • Most Blennies lack or have very small swim bladders however the Meiacanthus genus of Blennies do not share this trait.
