Canary Blenny & Dottyback help

Well my tank is 39 Gallon and ive had 2 ocellelaris clowns and 1 sunrise dottyback. I adopted a canary blenny from a friend. I read they have a powerful bite to defend themselves but mine just aint quick enough it seems. Anything i can do or should i just get rid of the canary blenny? My dottyback comes at him like a rocket when he sees him. Will they work it out? Any exp. or suggestions welcome. Thanks

It probably wot work out. Dottybacks don't look kindly to things that look like them.

Thats what im afraid of. I might have to get rid of one. The dottyback will be impossible to catch. I was also thinking that i may be pushing my limit for a 39 gallon tank too. 2 Ocellaris clowns, 1 sunrise dottyback and 1 canary blenny. Whats your opinion on this?

I don't know. That does not sound full at all. I have a 38 gallon with a pair of Gold Flake Maroons, a rare prawn goby and pistol shrimp, A baby multicolored angel, a fridmani dotty back, a springeri dottyback and a pair of lubock wrasses. All get along fine with each other.

I think that Paul has room for another fish or two depending on the size, but breakthecycle, that's a lot of fish! Bioload must be insane.

It's not really. My skimmer barely pulls anything. I do water changes every week or two.

Well i may have to get rid of one. Either the sunrise dottyback or the canary blenny. The dottyback obviously cost more. Ughh...wish theyd just get along cause i like them both. The blenny stays glued to the back glass beside the overflow. Guess hes scared. Wish he would just lay into the dottyback one good time with those fangs, but my dottyback is literally a ninja. Any ideas or suggestions?

my strawberry dottyback owns the left side of my tank.. She rarely lets any other fish neat her caves.. *sigh* Kind of wish she wasn't in there, but like you said, there is no getting her out. If your fish is anything like mine, it will stay aggressive.
