    Hi everyone
    I bought a midas blenny about a week and a half ago. When it arrived, he was very grayish in color, but i thought it was just because of the long flight and so on. Now a week and a half later it's still the same color. Will ever turn yellow?

    I know that stress also plays a role, but after a week I'm sure it must have settled in by now...unless you have another aggro Fishy somewhere...? I also read on one of the other Forums that Females tend to be the "colourful" one...not sure about that...I also found this quite interesting...:blush:
    Maybe it's blending in with you'r other Tank mates...:p

    Does no one know if this is a true midas or a variant specie of it? Does anyone have similar?

    These guys are very variable (like most blennies). Some are dull, some are bright yellow or orange. Price usually varies accordingly.
