The Blackline Blenny is is captive-bred within the USA. All blennies within the Meicanthus genus have a venomous bite that they use as defense.  These fish are yellow and green in color with a series of black markings that follow the lateral line.    The Blackline Blenny is a peaceful fish and is a beautiful addition to any community aquarium.

Found amid crevices and rocks on the bottom of its environment, the Blackline Blenny needs at least 10 gallons with scattered rocks for perching and hiding.

The diet should include meaty items such as vitamin enriched brine and mysis shrimp, chopped pieces of fish and shrimp, and a quality flake food.
