Canary Blenny (Meiacanthus oualanensis)

The Canary Blenny or Meiacanthus oualanensis is just one of the many different species of Blennies on our planet. These salt water fish get their names from their brilliant yellow coloration. Like other Blennies, they are not very big only growing to about 5" in length, with males normally being a bit larger than their female counterparts.
The Canary Blenny goes by a few different names including the Canary Fang Blenny and the Oualan Forktail Blenny. They are often kept in an aquarium setting and are considered to be fairly easy to take care of. An aquarium of about 40 gallons is acceptable with lots of live rock and the following water conditions, 72-78° F, dKH 8-12, pH 8.1-8.4 and sg 1.020-1.025. These fish are herbivores that should be fed brine shrimp, mysis shrimp and other healthy treats.  You can check out the Canary Blenny in an aquarium setting in the video below.  

One thing to note about the Canary Blenny is that they are venomous, and should be handled with extreme care.  If you have any additional observations about the Canary Blenny please share...
