Description

ORA® Captive-Bred Kamohara Blenny Info
It is believed that the ORA Kamohara Blenny (Meiacanthus kamoharai) is found in waters that are shallow in the subtropical coastal areas of southern Japan. ORA Kamohara Blennies are robust fish their bodies are covered in intricate patterns made of white and blue lines. As they grow older and develop, they go through a transition to a more monochrome-like look, moving from an erratic style to a more minimalist horizontal white stripe on their bodies of charcoal. The facial patterns change to become a smattering of sparkling white dots. Kamohara Blennies are strong fish that resemble those of the Striped Blenny rather than the delicate appearance of Blackline or Canary Blennies. They consume Zooplankton as their diet when they are in nature, however aquacultured fish will readily eat pellets as well as prepared food in a marine aquarium.
