Darwinism is alive and well in my tank :(

Geeze!!!!

I got a new fish today, I have to be careful picking fish for my reef cause my red lipped blenny is a bully, any new fish gets harrassed by the blenny for anywhere from a couple of hours to a couple of days. Well this time was no exception, there was little twist this time though....

I took this pic shortly after introducing the new fish...


This was the object of aggression from the blenny...


Apparently the blenny had never heard of darwin, or just wasn't buying it, but this time she bit off more than she could chew. Sometime during dinner the flamehawk had had enough and turned the tables. This was the result...


I have already started mixing water for a waterchange (to make sure the water quality is up, and I'm gonna up my feeding a bit, soaking it in some selco. Even though it looks bad, I think with a good healthy diet, the blenny should recover. My main concern at this point is bacterial infection, I'm hoping the blenny is in , otherwise, good enough health to resist any infection.

I can't stop laughing although I do feel bad for the blenny. You think he learned a lesson from this?

I certainly hope so, but I can say that the aggression towards the flame hawk have stopped.

What kind of Blenny is this? Have it saved as wallpaper. Looks like something from the deep.
