Your live fish may not match the image shown due to natural variations in each species. Each companion animal is different in shape, color, and personality.

Also known as a Convict Blenny, or Fangedragtsslimfisk (Denmark).

The Convict Blenny as a juvenile has stripes similar to Coral Catfish. As it matures, the pattern of blue, black and white begins to change into a mottled or spotted pattern. In the wild, this fish inhabits the reefs and shallow lagoons of the ocean creating burrows in the sand. In captivity, this fish does best with plenty of hiding places and a sandy bottom. Small groups or pairs can be added to a tank, but must be done simultaneously to prevent aggression.
