red scooter blenny turning blue-purple and underbelley turns bright yellow


Recommended Posts

my red scooter blenny turns all of his white spots into a blue-purple florucent like color and its belley turns a bright yellow. Is this normal and also what causes this odd but interesting thing to happen? I tried to take a pic of it when it is blue but it get scared and all of his blue parts turn back to the normal white and its belley turns back white

Mine does that when he is trying to intimidate me. The red on his body goes pale and his head colors up. He usually flares his display fin also.

He's holding his breath because he wants a bigger tank :)


Many fish (bi-color blennies come to mind) can change coloration to express ...well something

I prefer to think I'm magic...end of story :)


But seriously OP, many fish can change color temporarily to show mood...mating...etc.


Look up some mandarin mating pictures! They can change all crazy :)
