Well I just dodged a bullet, or I should say my new canary blenny dodged one. I just added a Canary Blenny to my tank tonight. He had been in for about 15 minutes and then I shut off the wave makers and feed the fish. I wanted to see if he would eat right away. My wavemakers have a feed mode...
My canary blenny is from peco and I got him an hour ago I drip acclimated for an hour and I put him in. I gave him some mysis but he didn't eat it. He is breathing rapidly and didn't accept the food. He looks kinda skinny. I'm worried please help
I have added a Canary Blenny to my box of water about 3 weeks ago. He does not seem to be eating. He is very active but is rediculously skinny. Nobody is picking on him. I tried raw shrimp chopped very fine because his mouth is small. I see him picking at the live rock and back wall off the...
Fish To Be Avoided: (fish that have incredibly low survivability in aquaria or are totally unsuitable for home aquaria)

Hey gang, I'm planning to move out of the area (hopefully to LA:wavey:) sometime soon, so I need to start thinking about selling my tank.
I have a Finnex 30 Gallon tank. This tank has a back area with a protein skimmer and a fuge. I have 40 pounds of live sand, with about 3 inches of sand in...
Well, after much debating with myself, I decided to add a CopperBanded Butterfly to my 180 gallon reef. I have gone back and forth about trying to keep one as I know their survival rate in captivity is less than encouraging. I had mainly been thinking about keeping one due to the abundance of...

So, last night we had a 15-minute power outage, due to a transformer catching on fire. (Yay! Fire!) We weren't too worried about our tanks because we've had power outages before and everything turned out fine...
When the power came back on, the tanks, of course, came back on. We immediately...

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...
Do Fish need to be acclimated to the flow of your tank.

My diamond gobby , and purple dottyback are doing fine

i am thinking about a clean up crew
i look at these reef cleanup packages for sell on various stores and it is alot of stuff for the 110g packages

He went from the fuge to the sump and then was pumped back up to the tank by...
Can I get some reef-safe fish suggestions. We have to chuck our butterfly due to the fact that she's eating my new corals.
After she's gone we will have this in a 45 gallon: tomato clown, yellowtail damsel, sandsifter goby, lawn mower blenny.
I'd like something bright--maybe yellow? Not...
