My blenny needs a friend...

I have a tailspot blenny and am looking to get another fish. My tank is a 28 gallon nano cube. I would like a wrasse of some sort to help control my flatworm population (at least we think they are flatworms). Are blennies and wrasses compatible? If not, any other suggestions? The blenny was the first fish we got so we want him to be happy. As always thank you for your help.

You just have to find the right wrasse they have a very wide spectrum of colors and personality

Check liveaquaria.com and look under wrasse-reef safe and that should give you a good idea the only thing is you might have trouble finding one that'll fit your tank

My blenny needs a friend!

I am going to the store today to to get a friend for my tailspot blenny. Any suggestions? something non-aggressive as my blenny is rather shy. I have corals too so reef safe is a must. Thanks!

How big is your tank? You might consider a chalk bass they are small, or a pj cardinal. You will probably need to find something that isn't a very aggressive eater.

A wrasse is a very aggressive eater if your blenny is shy it may end up not getting enough to eat. Wrasses are hit or miss when it comes to eating flatworms. It is much easier to get flatworm exit follow the direction and redose after about 4 or 5 days. Depending how bad it is you might can control them with siphoning. Dip all corals at least before putting them in your tank. I use revive and flatworm exit on all my new corals even when I move coral from one tank to the next I use revive I had flat worms once and don't want to take the chance of ever getting them again.

You can go with a lot of different fish. One of my favorites is a firefish goby. Any goby will do fine with your blenny. I've never had problems with my blenny eating with other fish. My bicolor blennies other tankmayes included clownfish, damsels, chromis, rabbitfish, wrasses, gobies, Pygmy angels...the list goes on. It's always been one of the hardiest fish and it gets along with all of my fish.
