I have found someone that is downsizing and is going to give away their Panther Grouper. I have a 200 gal tank and the fish is currently 6+ inches long. He says it has and will eat damsels but has not yet bothered his clown. Anyone have any ideas about whether they will bother a manderin. It is...
I have a question about Sea Apple behavior. Please spare me the "they'll nuke your tank" comments, as I fully understand the chances I have taken. (IMO I think most, only most not all, are made up or caused by powerheads)
Anyways, I have had my Apple for about two weeks now. It made its way to...
Well...seems this is just not going to work no matter what i do...over $600 in equipment..payed nearly $100 for this designer coral frag alone,saved dimes for almost 7 months to get it....weekly water changes...expensive brand carbon, pure water quality,constant care..& still..this...i know what...
I have a 200 gal tank with a 55 gal sump. After a tank crash when I used FWE (not FWE fault, just too much poison fm FW) I have a massive hair algae problem. I spent ALL last night pulling and brushing my rocks and things look better. I was given the Blenny and then bought the Foxface to help...
I'm going about this a bit differently
This tank was set up in 10-05 and redone for the nano build off last year.
Tank is a 5.5 g AGA with custom stand and canopy, HOB filter for flow
I DON'T LIKE IT!! No matter what I do I'm not happy with how it turns out.
During this build off it's either...
I am pretty new here so here is my official TheReefTank thread
I started my first reef tank in August 2006. Originally I wanted to start a planted fresh water Amazon tank. My plan was to be able to have a freshwater ray. However, I had a friend that was into reefs...
With such remarkable diversity within the suborder Blennioidei, I'm curious as to what blennies people are keeping or have had experience with in the past. Please post your favorites, least favorites and everything in between. If you want to expand to the "non-blenny" blennies, feel free (e.g...
On Wednesday evening We Will the blenny was fine and eating
Thursday Evening he looked like this he is swollen and puffy with blisters all over :( (the other 2 fish in the tank look fine )
Last nite we caught him and put him in the 5.5g to die but he is still alive and puffy looking from what I...
okee so i finally got a skimmer for my 15g thinking i must need one since ive been having a mild cyano problem.
nitrates are 10ppm, every other week i do a 20% water change. sg is 1.026, temp 78
fish are 2 false clowns and a small black sailfin blenny. cleanup crew is the typical bunch
If I remember right there is a problem with the Black Sailfin Blenny, something about it eating coral or something, but I can't find it.
Do you remember why the Black Sailfin Blenny is not a good idea for a reef tank?
ok, jumping on. I've been running nearly bare bottom (theres about a 1/4 inch here and there cause I didn't get it ALL out) for... 6 months.
my only issues: what will live and what will die? and how do I get my midas blenny out of the rocks? ACK!
I'm assuming your going to say set up a ten...
I would like to trade a Black Sailfin Blenny for something of equal value. The fish is 4 to 5 inches in length. I bought it to eat the algae in my tank. It is eating the algae but it is now topping off my Xenia's. It has a great personality and would be good for a fish only tank.
my phosphates are 0 using the fresh water card, there is no salt card, guess someone stole it. :( Called the LFS and was told the colors were close to the same. Figure either 0 or .5
nitrates are 20
ph 8.4 I think, its hard to read it.
I feed flake and pellet probably 2-3...
My LFS has always said nothing beats Miracle Mud but it is also the most expensive. I have seen another product by Kent that was about half the price but looks completely different. Or can I just use aragonite or some other typical reef media?
Seems to have many common names... dusky blenny, black sailfin blenny,Brown Combtooth Blenny.
Anyways jsut like to konw experiences with these guys?
here's a link
My LFS has one that is black. I was planning on getting a LMB but...
