Aquacultured by ORA. Much, much hardier than the wild caught canaries.These little fish have tons of personality and love to find a favorite spot in the aquarium to call home. They will often use rock crevices, caves, and empty barnacles to hide their body and allow their head to poke out to keep an eye on what's going on. They love to graze on algae throughout the aquarium and will often experience "pale patches" on their face and body when lights are first turned on. The Striped Blenny should not be mixed with other Blennies in small tanks. They are great for reef tanks and will accept most fish foods.The Blenny Family is commonly confused with the Goby family. The Blennies are distinguished by their single continuous dorsal fin and habit of resting on the bottom with their body curved. These fish will usually have tiny appendages on the top of their heads called "cirri". Some Blennies inhabit tidal pools where the water is warm and shallow. They have incredible jumping ability and are known to jump from pool to pool, which lends to the other name they are known as: "Rock Skipper". Other Blennies are found hiding in crevices and caves at coral reefs. These fish have blunt heads and their teeth are combed, giving them the ability to scrape algae -- their primary food source -- from rock surfaces.
