The Striped Blenny, Gammistes Blenny, Striped Fang Blenny also known as the Striped Poison Blenny. Is a mix of blue and black stripes which run across the length of its body.
It can be a great fit in aquariums if it is housed in a 30 gallon or larger aquarium that has live rock. Live rock offers areas to hunt and feed small on crustaceans, as well as areas to conceal. It’s not typically an aggressive fish unless its tank mates are of the same shape and design. The fangs of the fish serve as a defense mechanism that allows it to bite an aggressive fish.

 

The Striped Blenny’s diet is made up of finely chopped crustaceans and vitamin enriched brine shrimp, as well as frozen food preparations designed for herbivores.
