      Scientific Name: Meiacanthus mossambicus
      Max. size: 10.0 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; marine
      Climate: tropical
      Distribution: Western Indian Ocean = East Africa, Comoro Islands and Madagascar. Reported as likely at Seychelles but Randall and van Egmond 1994 believe otherwise.
      Biology: Inhabits coral reefs in areas with poor to moderate coral growth; often over coral rubble.
      Aquarium Care: Provide ample live rock, as this species will graze on the numerous crustaceans found inside. Mozambique Blennies are passive fish rarely bothering other tankmates, and rarely being bothered due to the venomous fangs. They will bite the inside of a predator's mouth when ingested. The predator will then spit the small fish out of its mouth with no harm done to the blenny.
