    Darn I thought I did my research properly! It seems as though my midas blenny shows a bit of aggression towards my 2 new purple firefish.

    Are these known to have compatability issues?

    Might've just been the odd episode or two, because they're absolutely fine right now...

    There is a good chance there will be a little bit of "handbags" with many new tank mates, sometimes better/worse than others (obviously not included is Warr's psycho domino):lol: but usually it settles down ok, how are the firefish now?

    Seem alright ;) I redid my aquascaping in an attempt to stop any territorial behaviour and it seems like they've settled.

    I always thought firefish were mid swimming fish, mine however seem to like being close to the substrate?

    Quite funny, the one "disappears" at night time (digs a burrow under the LR) while the other sleeps by himself on the substrate. Odd ;)

    they probably wanted the same spot under the LR the blenny had, how two fire fish together also thought that was not a good idea.
