I just brought home a Flame Hawk Fish, the Red Lip Bleeny I have had is being a total bully! Is this normal? I really lie the blenny cuz he eats the a;gae and I like the Hawkfish cuz, well.... I like it! Is the Blenny just being teritorial of his rocks?
Any advice is appreciated.

Cmon, you know a lot of us do it - we think of stupid names like Nemo for our clown. Here I'd love to see people list the kind of fish, and their given name (plus any relevant story as to how the said fish acquired the name).
In college I had a...

We had the Founder's day event tonight - and several ARC members were there (along with about 200-300 other people). At least two ARC couples became Founding members of the Georgia Aquarium. Bernie, Jeff, Bruce, and Ray gave great talks about the conservation projects at the aquarium.

1 domino damsel (i know, i know... they are mean. he was "inherited" too)
a "cave" and some live rock
