I was browsing liveaquaria for my future stocklist of my 34 long and someone suggested a bleenie. I came across this fella. it seems very very interesting. does anyone have any expierence with these? i know it says reef compatable and peaceful but are they truly?

I saw that while browsing through their fish selection too! I haven't seen one anywhere other than there though. They do look very cool though! Have you tried searching wet web media?

Wait! I found it in a file I have on my laptop. It says six inches long and is supposedly reef safe around inverts corals of all kinds and clams, pretty much everything, and it's also peaceful so I'd say, if you like it, go for it, after all, it appears to be a model citizen.

I'd advise no on the engineer, liveaquaria says minimum 70G I believe, added the get up to 1' long, and they're in the sand the most of the time. As for the convict blenny I can't really say

never seen/heard of the pike blenny before, so thats why I haven't posted

Convict and engineer are the same thing actually, and I suppose they might be too big although I'd heard of them happy I'm smallerish tanks
