The Bundoon Blenny is found in Tonga in the South Pacific and has a caudal fin that resembles a fork. The body is black with a yellow stripe running horizontally from behind the eye to the mid section of the body. Males are generally larger than females and experience a succession of color changes when breeding.

The Bundoon Blenny needs a minimum tank of 30 gallons with live rock for hunting and grazing. It is best to keep only one per aquarium unless a breeding pair is maintained.

This Blenny is very hardy and durable fish making them a perfect addition for the novice or seasoned aquarist. The Bundoon Blenny is a good candidate for a reef aquarium as it will not bother invertebrates nor corals. If attacked by other fish, the Bundoon Blenny will retaliate by biting the inside of the mouth of the attacker. It is considered venomous and should be kept only with caution around children having access to the aquarium since it may perceive fingers as an attacker and deliver a similarly painful bite.

The diet should consist of finely chopped crustacean flesh, mysis and vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, as well as frozen herbivore preparations.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 3/4" to 1-1/4"; Medium: 1-1/4" to 2"; Large: 2" to 3"
