    Has anyone ever had 2 bi-colour blennie's in the same tank?

    I have one in my nano and one in my 4ft, I am wanting to shut down the nano and don't really want to sell my blenny, he is such a character, so I am wondering if they will live together in my 4ft?

    I believe they can. They are pretty peaceful and one of the blennies that can be put together. I cant remember where i read that

    Yip scuba, one of the few blennies that will live with its own kind

    Ive kept more than one blenny...as long as the tank is big enough and lots of rockwork / hiding space etc

    Thanks guys, I'll give it a try and hope all goes well, it will have to go well because once they're in there's no way I'm going to be able to catch one of them again :p

    Just some feedback on this, both blenny's are in, the new addition was considerably larger than the established one and they are both getting on fine together.

    intresting, i found two bi colours to be very territorial when i put them in together and that was in an 8ft. Glad to hear they going well :)

    Yip, they seem to enjoy each others company, they spend all of their time on one side of the tank in amongst 2 or 3 rocks where they have established their 'holes'.
