Canary Blenny’s striking yellow color makes it an excellent addition to
a reef aquarium. This exotic fish is found in the currents of lagoons
and reefs off Fiji and Tonga where it feeds on zooplankton.
The Canary Blenny is a natural choice for a reef tank because it
mixes well with other fish, the only exception being similarly shaped
blennies. It will not disturb corals or other invertebrates.
This fish should be kept in a tank of at least 20 gallons with ample
places to hide. It may act aggressively toward other fish if provoked
but is generally peaceful in a large aquarium. The Canary Blenny
reaches a maximum size of 4″-5″ (10 – 12 cm).
All Fang Blennies have high metabolisms
and should be fed small amounts at least 2-3 times a day. They will
accept a wide assortment of prepared foods and make themselves visible
in the water column most of the time. The Canary Blenny should be
provided with ample rockwork in which to hunt and hide when threatened.
