Smithii Blenny (Meiacanthus smithi)

The White Blenny is mostly white in color with a black stripe that runs down the base of the dorsal fin.

Natural Ecology:
Meiacanthus smithi is a carnivore of zooplankton and other bite-size invertebrates. Like most members of this genus, they have evolved a stinging bite for protection against predators. They have also evolved bright colors as an effective reminder to predators, who distinctly associate this species with a stinging experience.

Indigenous To:
Indo-West Pacific, northern Sri Lanka, and western Java Sea.

This species ignores other species. They are often present in mid-water, hovering near its favorite rock crevice.

Usually ignores corals and most invertebrates.

Proaquatix specimens have been weaned to take aquarium pellets and flakes. Freshly frozen invertebrates such as ocean plankton, Mysis shrimp, brine shrimp, and chopped squid.
