Feeding Bi-Color Blenny

I've been putting dried seaweed in the tank...on a clip with a grid and he loves it... But should I be doing this every day?? I know they need lots of veggies... I haven't seen my dwarf angel go near it though wich is sort of funny... My shrimp seems to like it too.

But should I be putting a bit on the clip daily or is this something I should on do two or three times a week in addition the Prime Reef and meatier foods I feed them?

That fish is an herbivore, but I'm thinking the clip should be used less. Maybe like you say above. I'd also try some Ocean Nutrition formula 2 - I think that's the green one. Soak it in garlic and zoe for enhanced nutrition (zoe) and immune system boost (garlic guard or something). The other sich will enjoy that too. I like mixing Ocean Nutrition one and two (meat and veggies) together with frozen brine and myisis (sp?) in the soak. Everybody gets someting that way. If you get something like that together, and the blenny nips at algae in the tank also, maybe you won't need the clip anymore IMO.

My forktail eats stuff off the LR (although, I'm not sure what).

That one eats mostly meat, but will do veggies too. Of course the forktail has a venomous bite too. Bi-color doesn't. Definitely different diets between those two.

For what it is worth I would cut the clip down to a couple of times a week. No sense adding it every day. I add a clip once a week or so, or dump some (rinsed off) macro algae from my 24 gallon nano that grows like a weed. Odd that the dwarf does not eat it....


My bi-color will eat whatever I put into the tank. Mysis, live brine, angel formula, pellet, whatever. It took a couple of months for him to start doing this, but he will eat everything I put in there except krill. I know these guys are herbivores, you can tell from the comb-like teeth (check your glass, you can see the tooth marks in the algae after they bite off some) but mine has started eating meat..... I dunno why.

I feed veggies daily. Mysis every other day.
