    Hi, I've always been an over filter and rely on water changes type of aquarist whose experience has been mostly South American fish in lightly planted tanks from 30 to 50 gallons. I've kept freshwater shrimp and snails and have come to prefer critters to fish. Have several tanks empty and...

    i have a new 3 1/2" tomini tang that is peaceful to everything in my tank (clown pair, mandarin, all corals, snails) but he seems to hate my tailspot blenny. i have adequate hiding spaces in my 55 gallon for the tailspot but i hate to think that he has to watch over his shoulder all day long...

    I have had a Scooter Blenny in my tank for about a year and a half. 30 gallon tank with plenty of live rock and at least 5 to 6 corals. I have never fed him copepods and feed my fish Mysis shrimp. All seemed fine up until about a month ago. He has been living with all of the fish in the tank for...

    I have a 50 Gallon Reef tank I am setting up for seahorses. I have 2 Firefish, a 2" Bicolor Blenny and I HAD a Yasha Goby/Pistol Shrimp pair. The last fish to go in was the Bicolor, who shortly thereafter took up residence for a couple days in the same rock/burrow as the Yasha Goby and Tiger...

    Over the past few weeks or so the midas blenny has been very badly behaved. He bullies the rainford goby (The poor guy is friends with the green mandarin and now only ventures out if she's with him), nips at coral and deliberately knocks over frags. He had a little hole in the rock that he...

    Just earlier I was looking at my tank and I found my Lawnmower Blenny on its side dead. It doesnt look like it was a normal death because its entire underside was swollen. The Foxface that I also have in the same tank seemed really agitated and I've heard that their venom does make things swell...

    I need help clarifying what my sailfin blenny will eat. All that I read before introducing it to my tank was that they are herbivores but mine is eating brine shrimp. Is this just that there's insufficient algae (aka a staving fish)?

    I have a 29G Biocube that I've cycled for a good month and a half; I have 0 ammonia and nitrite and I wouldn't even say 5ppm nitrate. Just yesterday I put in 5 hermits, 2 margarita snails, a cleaner shrimp and a Striped Blenny. I've noticed today that my Blenny is very inactive and 'swimming'...

    Hi All, I am a noob... but progressing well. I have a 92 gallon tank with about 20lbs of live sand and 30 lbs of live rock. I have a flame angel, banded sleeper goby and two ocellaris clowns. Everybody is eating and getting along. My numbers are all good. I have some algae on the glass...

    I had my molly miller blenny for 3 years. This morning I woke up and saw this can anybody tell if an injury or parasite? I did notice my canary blenny looked a not ruffed up too.

    Anyone have experience/success combining blennies? I'm trying to cut down on the number of tanks I have and was wondering who could peacefully share space. The tanks I want to keep running are a 55 and a 40b. The current blennies I have spread out over other tanks are a Midas, bicolor, tailspot...

    Unfortunately due to budget issues, I won't be setting up the 30 tall reef that I've been planning on. However, I'm still going to be setting up a SW tank this year (probably around June-August), and a native SW tank at that. I'm probably going to use a 15 gallon (24"x12"x12") tank with a...

    So I haven't posted anything in a while but I finally got the LEDs in the mail and here they are ! And like mentioned before the pictures DEFINATELY do not do the lights justice. And here is the aqua scape, I finally got it perfect with lots of caves and tunnles and more importantly the fish...

    So this is an update for those who have been keeping up with me. I'm stubborn at times, but thank you all for your advice and help. What ive done so far is point the power head at the surface and I'm gonna dailyly clean the bio film until I can get better flow / a surface skimmer. I created a...

    I think I read online that it's an eyelash blenny. I've never seen anything like it and the LFS I bought it from doesn't have any others like it,I was wondering If it is a female or ..? Thanks ! Picture below.

    Hey everyone! I have a 22 Gallon salt water tank, it's already established with a Misbar Perc Clownfish, a CUC and one Eye Lash Blenny. Now I know some people reccomend not to add 2 blennies in that small of a tank, however I went to my local LFS and they have multiple tank running on display...

    Hello all, new member but I've been reefing for about half a year. Just wanted to share something interesting. My harptail blennies sleep on top of each other, they do this every night and it's always in the same spot (on top of my in-tank thermometer). Maybe there's more to these fishies than...

    Finally i got to the point of starting up my first ever attempt at saltwater.. Been dwelling with this idea for 2-3 years i think now, only to delay since i head so many stories of how stress it would happen to be if you were to move and such. Anyway i got myself a cheap deal i would say, so...
