So I moved my midas blenny into the display tank today, he settled in almost instantly. I had read that they prefer to perch high, but for some reason he has chosen a cave at the bottom of the tank. He has changed colors more frequently today then he did in QT, probably because there was not live rock to blend to in the QT. He did hide in the PVC
. So he is bright yellow when swimming, but rapidly changes colors when he returns to the cave. I have never kept one before so I have a question. I know they change colors for many reasons, but is it normal for them to only turn yellow while they are swimming? I will take pictures after he settles down a little more, probably tomorrow.
On a side note, when I bought him at the LFS
, they ordered him and told me 22 bucks, so I picked him up and they rang him up for 40. I told them that I had been told 22, the guy laughed and looked at his order sheet and said he had told me the price they paid for it. He changed the price and said he was more than willing to eat it because he likes to keep his customers. One of many reasons I only buy from his store. That and they put him in QT for two weeks and verified he was eating well before selling him to me.
