Food and feeding

To keep Zebra blennies fish happy they will require a diet comprising of plenty of live or frozen foods. They will accept blood worms, micro worms and brine shrimp. They will sift through the substrate looking for food so adding copepods and rotifers to the tank will definitely benefit these fish.


Zebra blennies are found in India, Malaysia and Indonesia, Singapore and the Philippines.


There are no visible differences between the sexes.


As of yet there are no reported cases of Omobranchus zebra breeding in the aquarium.

Short description

This is a new species to the aquarium hobby; they should be kept in a brackish set up, the salinity needs to be set at 1.005. Use sand for the substrate as they will spend a lot of time sifting through looking for food and add pieces of bogwood or rock formations to create caves and hiding places for them.
