Description

The Harptail Blenny (Meiacanthus mossambicus), also known as the Mozambique Fangblenny, is a member of the “Fang Blennies”, a group of free-swimming venomous Blennies that are often difficult to keep as wild-caught fish, but are almost ubiquitously cultured and available as captive-bred fishes often for substantially lower prices than wild-caught counterparts.

For whatever reason, this fish seems to just get overlooked. How often do you see this unique coloration of greenish-gray, black and yellow in a fish?! Ironically, this fish also hates the camera. something about its coloration and lack of patterning make it nearly impossible for the camera to get a good focus on the fish!

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!
