Orange Spotted Blenny



The Orange Spotted Blenny is also called The Redspotted Blenny or Red-spotted Rockskipper. It is white and red with spots of orange or reddish colors across its body. It is a great choice for a 30 gallon or larger aquarium that has a solid reef system with lots of rockwork. You should only keep one fish per tank unless there is a mated pair. It might nibble at stony coral polyps and mantles, but it isn't concerned by the other tankmates unless they are predatory. It is considered to be a tough fish when kept in an aquarium with a natural crop of microalgae that it can feed on. The Orange Spotted blenny will be inclined to consume microalgae in the tank. A diet rich in blue-green algae and marine algae (Spirulina) will aid in helping to make the Orange Spotted Blenny thrive, together with other vegetables such as dried and frozen food items for herbivores.   Approximate Purchase Size: Medium: 2" to 3" Large: 3" to 4-1/2"

Helpful Questions From Clients
Frequently Asked Questions
Is hiring a professional necessary to set up a saltwater aquarium?

As a general rule, a larger custom aquarium might require installation by a professional. However, a kit from our online fish store is relatively affordable and beginner friendly. That means you should have no problem setting it up yourself.

Which saltwater aquarium fish should you choose when starting out?

Consider a yellow tang fish. This popular saltwater aquarium fish does a great job of coexisting with other types of fish you’ll find in our online fish store.

How does a saltwater aquarium differ from a freshwater one?

Saltwater aquariums require a bit more maintenance and monitoring than freshwater tanks. Different fish require different levels of salinity, pH tolerances, and temperature requirements. They also require specialized pumps, filters, and other equipment that can handle salt. We can guide you through everything you need to know to set up a healthy, thriving reef tank.

Do fish in a saltwater aquarium swim in a school?

That depends on the species. However, if it’s a fish that swims in a school in the wild, they’ll do the same in an aquarium. Some fish that swim in schools include the green and blue chromis, cardinalfish, and dartfish, for example. When ordering from an online fish store, make sure you do your research on how specific fish species behave to ensure they’ll school (or at least coexist) with your current fish.

Is the effort required to maintain a saltwater aquarium worth it?

Yes! Many aquarists dream of owning thriving saltwater aquariums. You have a tiny piece of the ocean in your home, featuring magical and exotic fish that can only survive in saltwater.
