    So something attacked my firefish goby last night. Took off about half his dorsal fin and some of his tail fin. The prime suspect is the new addition of an algae blenny but this is much smaller and i thought they were herbivores? The other creatures i have in my tank are as follows: 2x...

    So I've had this blenny for about 6 weeks, he was very plump in the lfs, since then he has dropped loads of weight and is now only sporadically pecking at a pump outlet with no algae on it. He is getting very skinny and I'm quite concerned. There is plenty of film algae on the back of the...
