Red Checked Blenny also known as the Sand Perch, Red Spotted Sand Perch, Red Grubfish or Sandhopper Blenny are found from the Western Indian Ocean.
Livestock arrives in and out of stock very regularly, depending upon availability of the item from the source. The more rare and expensive items are often difficult to hold in stock, and can take time to source, so we generally require a deposit to locate and purchase the extremely rare items
The Red Checked Blenny have an elongated body that is vertically striped in alternating red and white. The head is accentuated by large eyes, which are black in colour. These fish are very hardy and do not require a large aquarium.
A well-established 30-gallon or larger aquarium with plenty of live rock is a suitable environment. It is not usually aggressive, unless the tank mates appear to have a similar shape as it does. It is best to house singly unless kept in a larger aquarium and the two are a mated pair. The Red Checked Blenny is a great jumper, making a tight fitting canopy a must.
The Red Checked Blenny does best in an aquarium with large amounts of mature live rock that it can graze upon. The diet should consist of meaty items including vitamin enriched brine and mysis shrimp, chopped fresh seafood, and a quality flake food.
