The bluestriped fang blenny is frequently found hiding in deserted worm tubes, waiting to dart out and feed on the skin, mucus and sometimes scales of other fishes. Believed to be facultative mimics, Juvenile bluestriped fang blennies mimic Labroides dimidiatus, and attack unsuspecting fishes at cleaner stations. Also able adopt an alternative color and striping pattern, they may be seen swimming among shoals, taking nips of nearby fishes.
