Striped Fang Blenny - Meiacanthus grammistes - Striped Grammistes Blenny
The Striped Fang Blenny is also referred to as Gammistes Blenny, Striped Blenny, or Striped Poison-Fang Blenny. It has alternating black and yellow stripes that run the entire length of the body.It tends to do well in an aquarium if housed in a 30 gallon or larger aquarium with live rock. 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 Striped Fang Blenny is a solitary species found in sheltered lagoon and seaward reefs.Very popular with Aquarists, the Striped Fang Blenny can be kept in either reef aquaria or a community aquarium, as long as there are no other Blennys of the same body type in the tank. As with others of its genus, the Striped Fang Blenny's bite can be slightly toxic. If bitten seek medical advice, especially if diabetic, anemic or suseptible to allergic reactions.
