Meiacanthus nigrolineatus The Blackline Fang Blenny is found in the Red Sea and Western Indian Ocean. It has a striking blue head with a yellow body and black dorsal fin. This is an active but peaceful species that is a great choice for the community reef tank. 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 Blackline Blenny should be provided with ample rockwork in which to hunt and hide when threatened. Photo by ORA
