The Disco Blenny named for the flashy action and neon color, is also named Smith's Blenny in honor of ichthyologist James Smith (South Africa). The Disco Blenny has a black face mask on a white body, grows to only three inches and is great for nano tanks and any size reef tanks. Disco Blenny do well in an aquarium if provided with live rock. The live rock provides places to hunt and feed on small crustaceans as well as places to hide. It is not usually aggressive unless the tank mates appear to have a similar shape as it does. Its fangs are more of a defense mechanism used for biting an aggressive fish back.
