The Captive-Bred Canary Blenny is also known as the Oualan Forktail Blenny, or Canary Fang Blenny. The Canary Blenny is aptly named, being a solid vibrant yellow. Males are generally larger than females and experience a succession of color changes when breeding.
This blenny needs a minimum tank size of 30 gallons with reef rock for hunting and grazing in order to thrive. It is best to keep only one per tank unless a breeding pair is maintained. If attacked by other fish, the Canary Blenny will retaliate by biting the inside of the mouth of the attacker.
The diet of the Canary Blenny should consist of finely chopped crustacean flesh, mysis and vitamin-enriched brine shrimp as well as frozen herbivore preparations.
