The Canary Blenny is also known as the Oualan Forktail Blenny, or Canary Fang Blenny, but why go to that much trouble. The simple Canary Blenny is aptly named, being a solid vibrant yellow. Males are generally larger than females and experience a succession of color changes when breeding. Canary blennies are best to keep only one per tank unless a breeding pair is maintained. If attacked by other fish, the Canary Blenny will retaliate by biting the inside of the mouth of the attacker. Canary Blenny is slightly venomous and should be kept only with caution around children that can access the tank. These little blennies may perceive a little finger as an attacker and deliver a similarly painful bit.
