Just caught my bicolor blenny picking at my new brain

Well I"ve been debating about getting rid of my bicolor blenny and my flameback angel due to some suspected picking at my SPS corals. Today while I was working on my tank I saw him take 4 swipes at my new brain coral. It has some minor damage, some tissue is receeding and skeleton is visible at small locations. This is going to be fun trying to catch him in 180lbs or LR He is also one of my favorite fish but I can't just let him keep damaging my corals.

I know some people that swear bicolors won't nip and some that swear they are evil, bicolor blennies, IMO, have a rep similar to angels.

Sorry to hear. :|

Anyway I have 105pds of LR, and what I did was I took a tank devider, removed rock to where I could slide it down to the substrate. I slid it down to where I was deviding off 3/4s of the tank. I held it at the top, and baited the fish to come to the 1/4ths section, then I dropped down trapping him. I then removed all the big lr peices to the other side until I could catch the little bugger. HTH!
