The Orange Spotted Blenny, otherwise known as the Red-spotted Rockskipper or the Redspotted Blenny, are red and white in color with orange and red patterned spots decorating their bodies.


It is best to house the Orange Spotted Blenny in a 30 gallon tank or larger with live rock for hiding, grazing, and perching. These fish are peaceful and can be kept singly or in mated pair. They can be kept in reef aquariums but with caution. They do tend to nip at clam mantles and coral polyps.



The diet of the Orange Spotted Blenny should include: marine algae, vegetable preparations, and frozen and dried foods.
