Right when I got back with the tank I watched...

    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)?

    Hello so I have a reef tank and tonight I noticed that my blue spotted jaw fish was jumping around the tank was all pale heavy breathing and just landed on the sand and was what looked like paralyzed since he was stiff.
