Bundoon Blenny   (Meiacanthus bundoon)
Family: Blenniidae (Blennies)
Natural Range: South Pacific Ocean
Depth: 0 to 49 ft.   Size: 3 in.   Jumps: Yes   Space: 24+ gal.
Reef Safe: Yes   Care Level: Moderate   Temperament: Caution
Diet: Zooplankton, algae
Natural History: The Bundoon Blenny is found on rocky reefs. It has both a fang and a venom gland which makes its bite at least mildly toxic.
Husbandry: The Bundoon Blenny may be aggressive with other small elongated tankmates that are roughly the same size as it is. It only uses its fangs in self defense so it should not be housed with overly aggressive tankmates which could get bit. It will likely be aggressive towards other blennies in the home aquarium.
