    My little Bicolour Blennie is probably the coolest in the tank. Found him hiding in a snail shell. I put the shell in there for a big hermit, but he took it for himself.

    The other day I switched a wave maker off and he parked himself in there. When ever I switch them off, I look carefully to see if he isn't in there before switching them on again.

    I have a tailspot as well, it is like watching a soap opera, he is always busy with something. I am sure he can recognise feeding tools as he goes nuts when you approach the tank with something in your hand.

    I also have a Bicolour Blennie...I've named him "Puppy"...he reminds me so much of a dog...the way he parks off on my SEIO Pump bracket...like a dog on a couch..and then he pops his head over the side and watches the world go by....he is so placid..he just lays there when my Cleaner Shrimp "Cheeky" walks all over his face and body cleaning him....that reminds me so much of a dog with a small kitten on his back, pulling on his ears and face...:lol:
