Bi-Color Blenny and Sailfin Algae Blenny

Think an algae blenny and bi-color would fight in a 72 gallon tank? I've never mixed blennies before, I hear they can really dish it out to each other though.

Want a great read check out my debut novel Neptune's Garden: www.neptunesgardenbook.com

I never had two of them but just one was enough for me. He was quite fiesty to my gobies.

I have a algae blenny and bi-color in my 55 gal with no problems. They were introduced at the same along with a midas. The midas and bi-color would fight over the best hiding places at first but settled down after a few weeks. Good luck.
Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

I got a midas and a small sailfin (thought it was a bi-color when I first got him) in a 155g. Every so often the larger midas (twice the size) would chase the smaller sailfin, but only for short bursts to claim his territory.

I'd go for it. Plenty of rocks for both to perch on right?
