Description

Meiacanthus grammistes officially carries the common name “Striped Poison-fang Blenny”, but it’s generally shorthanded “Striped Blenny”. It is one of the more long-standing, long-time Fang Blennies that’s been available as a captive-bred fish, and remains an exciting choice for your aquarium.

Meiacanthus grammistes is interestingly suggested as a more solitary species, although as juveniles they clearly aggregate in my holding aquariums. This species is mimicked by another blenny, Petroscirtes breviceps, the juvenile of the Sea Bream Scolopsis bilineatus, as well as the Cardinalfish species Cheiliodipterus nigrotaeniatus. It reaches a maximum length of around 4 inches.

All Fang Blennies benefit from frequent small feedings throughout the day. The bite of a Fang Blenny is suggested to be similar to a bee-sting; take appropriate precautions when handling this fish.

The size of juvenile Fang Blennies varies, but the fish available are generally between 1.25″ and 2″ in length, sometimes more. If you have specific size requests or concerns, please include them with your order.

Word to the wise – I’ve found all Fang Blennies to be consummate jumpers. Tight fitting lids with little to no gaps are ideal. Put them in open-top tanks at your own risk!
