    Hi there
    I bought a bicolor blenny on Friday. I thought they are supposed to be peacefull, but this one "fishes" my yellow goby from under his rock, chases and bites him. What can I do?

    The bi-colors are known to be aggressive towards other blennies and gobies, you will have to remove one of them.

    I was hoping not to. Well, I have 2 Gobies, so I guess the Blenny will have to be the one. :(

    Research Research Research anything before adding to your system we all make these silly mistakes. Google is a reefers bestest friend.

    Well, I'm in the process of setting up a bigger tank. Will keep him in garage until big tank is ready and give him another chance.
