    I currently have a smallish midas blenny but would like to add either a lawnmower or a bicolor blenny. The tank is 600L. Yay or Nay?

    I had an algae blennie and a midas in a 200l tank once - no problems.

    I have had a midas and lawnmower in the same tank, no problems. Not sure about a midas and a bicolor, I know the bicolor's are slightly more aggressive towards their own species, but I've never had a bicolor with a different blenny so can't comment on that.

    Thanks for the feedback, will go with the lawnmower. With a little luck it'll like bryopsis:p

    Whats quite interesting though, when bryopsis is in a weakened state, it seems to be more palatable to herbivores. Had my ATS and chaeto going for a while now and also upped the ph to 8.6. The bryopsis in some places is turning whitish now. I think my YT may be nibbling at it as well. Will update my bryopsis thread if that is the case.
