First of all, Happy Halloween to everybody!

What I believe to be my sailfin Blenny, is absolutely reaping havoc in my reef tank.
First I figured out he killed my favorite serpent starfish.

And now (at first I thought my emerald crab was pushing frags out to look for a new hiding spot.) Turns out, my Blenny is trying to push them out! He swam on top of my coral and tried nudging it out as soon as I refragged it (fortunately I used epoxy this time.)

I haven't determined if this is related yet but both of my clownfish have a mild case of ich and the sailfin blenny appears to be completely unharmed or unaffected.

Any suggestions?

Wow, my Blenny doesn't harm anything or anyone except algae. Are you sure its the Blenny?

Now, I believe its possible he could be pushing the frags out cuz mine has a hiding spot that he would most not like me gluing frags on.

My LMB is super cool, such an interesting personality. Even watches me watching the tank. He's never been a jerk.

You got any turbo snails? Those guys can be bulldozers, and have wreaked havoc on my frags many times.

Just keep a close eye on him and if you are sure its him...maybe try and catch him with a fish trap and get a store credit back at a petstore...you may just have a fish with a unique personality or something. I wouldn't continue to let it tear up stuff though.
