General Information
Common Name Disco Blenny, Smith's Blenny,
Family Blenniidae
Latin Name Meiacanthus smithii
The White Blenny is also referred to as Whites Blenny, Smiths Blenny, Smiths Fang Blenny or Disco Blenny. Its body is mostly blue with a black stripe which starts at the chin and runs through the eyes and down the dorsal fin. It tends to do well in an aquarium if provided with live rock in a 50 litre or larger aquarium. The live rock provides places to hunt and feed on small crustaceans as well as places to hide. It is not usually aggressive unless the tank mates appear to have a similar shape as it does. Its fangs are more of a defense mechanism used for biting an aggressive fish back. The White Blenny diet consists of chopped crustaceans, vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, and frozen food preparations for herbivores.
