How to Care for Striped Blenny
Meiacanthus grammistes is a Fang Blenny species that ranges in the Western Pacific from Indochina to Papua New Guinea, north to the Ryukyu Islands and south to Australia. They have a yellow head and alternating black and white stripes that end in dots towards the tail. These beautiful Fang Blennies attain a maximum length of 4.5” in the wild, although in the aquarium they will mostly grow to 3.5”.
All Fang Blennies have high metabolisms and should be fed small amounts at least 2-3 times a day. They will accept a wide assortment of prepared foods and make themselves visible in the water column most of the time. The Striped Blenny should be provided with ample rockwork in which to hunt and hide when threatened.
In the wild they’re usually solitary and they’re often peaceful towards tankmates unless presented with conspecifics or similar looking fish.
Maximum Length: 4.5"
Care Level: Moderate
Reef Compatibility: Excellent
Minimum Aquarium Size: 30 gal.
Range: Indo Pacific, Australia, Solomon Islands
Water Conditions: 75-80° F; sg 1.024-1.026 (1.025 is ideal); pH 8.1-8.4 Ca 420-440 ppm, Alk 8-9.5 dKH, Mg 1260-1350, Nitrates <10ppm, Phosphates, < .10ppm
Water Chemistry: Maintaining Ammonia at 0 ppm, Nitrites at 0 ppm, and Nitrates below 10ppm will help to keep your Percula Clownfish happy and healthy. We recommend doing a water change soon after Nitrates rise above 10 ppm. Maintaining proper calcium (420-440 ppm), alkalinity (8-9.5 dkh - run it 7-8 if you are carbon dosing) , and magnesium levels (1260-1350 ppm) will help to keep pH stable in the 8.1-8.4 range. We recommend a specific gravity of 1.024-1.026 with 1.025 being ideal for fish. Temperature should remain stable as well and should stay within a 2 degree range.
