The Bitter Mod
I'm sure everyone has made an impulse buy and 9 out of 10 times they turn out fine. Well I made my first impulse buy last weekend (Cirripectes Stigmaticus) and now the struggle is on to keep this creature prospering in my tank. Its basically a red striped with blue tint Lawnmower Blennie(yes he's stunning). Sadly it wasn't until after making the purchase that I started doing some research. From what I've read and the responses gathered from some fish experts(Marini,Skinner) that these fish have never been known to accept prepared foods. So now I'm stuck trying every trick out there to get him to eat prepared foods, or hoping that my tank can produce enough micro algae to keep him prospering. I could take him back to the LFS for credit or I could trade him to someone with an even larger tank. These two options don't change the fact that I should have done my research before hand.
