I'm thinking of adding a midas blenny to my 60g cube. I have two clowns and a lyretail Anthia jn there currently. I have lots of little caves I think it would enjoy.

What are its eating habits? Will it eat pellets or flakes? I like to be able to feed using an auto feeder if I'm out of town.

Anyone have experience with them?

I have had two of them. very active fun fish to keep. They eat anything you feed the tank, frozen foods and flakes and maybe pellets depending on the fish.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Mine goes nuts for new life spectrum therm +A he also loves all frozen food. IMO they need to be fed at least every day. I feed mine directly twice a day to insure all the food gets eaten. He's my favorite fish. Do know he won't use a cave they like to find a little crevis to fold their body into. Mine also loves to be in a barnical. Be sure when you buy him he's healthy. What to look for, bright yellow color, nice thickness in the body, and IMO most importantly active. Mine will supplement his diet a bit with algae he likes to scrape I off the overflow.

I also like the purple firefish. Are they compatible?

I don't think so. Because the midis is some what aggressive and really doesnt seem to like things with the sAme body shape. But mine get along great with my royal gramma
