The ORA® Captive-Bred Blackline Blenny features a handsome color palette with a striking blue head coloration that transitions beautifully to a yellow body coloration. Its black dorsal fin and a namesake black line that follows the upper contours of its body add a refined and sophisticated accent to this active but peaceful species. Originally found in the Red Sea and Western Indian Ocean, the ORA® Captive-Bred Blackline Blenny will easily find itself at home in the community reef aquarium.

The ORA Captive-Bred Blackline Blenny requires a 30-gallon or larger aquarium with ample rockwork to thrive. The live rock provides places to hunt and feed on small crustaceans as well as places to hide. It is not usually aggressive unless the tank mates appear to have a similar shape as it does. Its fangs are more of a defense mechanism used for biting an aggressive fish back.

The ORA Captive-Bred Blackline Blenny should be fed a well balance diet of carnivorous foods along with a selection of foods designed for herbivores. Due to their high metabolism, the ORA Captive-Bred Blackline Blenny should be offered small quantities of food several times per day.

Approximate Purchase Size: 1-1/2" to 2"
