The Orange Spotted Blenny is also known as the Redspotted Blenny or Red-spotted Rockskipper. It has a red and white body with orange to reddish spots along the side of its body.

It will do well in a 30 gallon or larger aquarium in a well-established reef system with plenty of rock work. Keep only one per tank unless you have a mated pair. It may nip at stony coral polyps or clam mantles but is not bothered by other tank mates unless predatory. It is considered a hardy fish in an aquarium if given a crop of natural microalgae to feed on.

The Orange Spotted Blenny will want to eat microalgae growing fresh within the tank. A diet providing marine and blue-green algae (Spirulina) will help the Orange Spotted Blenny thrive, along with other vegetable matter including frozen and dried foods for herbivores.

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

Customer Testimonials

Nate Park Seattle , WA
This fish has a bunch of personality and is a great addition as a bottom dwelling fish! The vibrant orange spots and cute doikers on their head will receive woooos and ahhhhhhs from friends and family viewing your tank!

One of my favorite blennies, for looks, personality, and relatively rarity. Bbeing a rockskipper and lacking a swim bladder, this fish will mostly stay on the rocks or the bottom, but in any case, it will really appreciate hiding holes (a barnacle cluster is perfect). It will retreat to them between foraging trips and sit with its head poking out. Just wonderful.

This fish is awesome but unfourtantly he passed about a week ago
Jordan Cullen Natrona Heights , PA
Made it through QT and into my display. It jumped out of my 24" tall reef twice! It did not survive the second fall. Glass or screen top is a must! Very shy and jumpy fish that hung around the lower areas and substrate.
