The ORA® Captive-Bred Blenny can also be 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 until Australia. It is characterized by yellow and black stripes that cover the entire length.
It is most likely to thrive in aquariums if it is housed in 30 gallons or a bigger aquarium that has live rock. The live rock gives it spots to hunt and eat tiny crustaceans and areas to conceal. It’s usually not aggressive unless tankmates have the same shape as it does. The fangs of the fish are an attack mechanism that is used to bite an aggressive fish.

 

The ORA®  Capetive-Bred Striped Blennys are carnivores. They should be given a variety of food items designed for herbivores. This fish must be provided with small portions of food 2-3 times throughout the day.
