Red Wine Dragonet Blenny
Red Wine Dragonet
Also known as the Red Wine Blenny, it sifts through sand for food. Care must be taken to introduce food there the Red Scooter will find it. The fish grows to five inches and will do well in almost any salt water aquarium.
The Scooter Blenny is indigenous to the Pacific Ocean and is a small fish with a large head. It is a typical dragonet with top mounted eye and pointed petite mouth. The Scooter Blenny has a starry pattern of black and white blotches with bright blue spots on the head, which contributes to great camouflage. They are called scooter because of the way they swim. They appear as if they are scooting over the substrate of the aquarium.
