Could try this out, from IO's new line of food. I have been using their "gel" food and the fish go nuts for it.

AWSOME! Looks like a great thing to try out, and I think I remember seeing petsmart offering it in their store. I will go out and look for it later.

Thanks!
Matt

So an update:
My blenny (bongo) has really livened up! He comes out and looks for me. If I hide from him, he gets excited and starts swimming out in the open trying to see where I am. Its so funny...I will duck below the tank and he quickly swims to the side and looks down at me. "Give me food".

If I approach the glass, he comes out of his cave and looks at me. (Waiting for food).

He seems to like the nori now. I put some in and he comes and gets it. Such a cute lil guy!

I wonder if I could fit a small goby in there for him? Do they like company? I know my sixline wrasse follows my clowns around all day. I wonder if a goby would make a good pal for the blenny? He seems curious of the other critters, but they dont seem to like him. (They hide from him). My concern would be bioload.

Matt

I still think blennies are some of the most personable and entertaining SW fish.

They sure are! Saw the blenny changing his color patterns today depending on the color of rock he was resting on. Very neat to see this happen right before your eyes!

So, what are your thoughts on a buddy for him? Should I keep him the only fish in the tank, or add a goby (or another blenny maybe?)

If you do another blenny, I wouldn't do the perching type. A swimmer like the forktail variety won't compete for space with your bi-color. Look at the fang types. The canary was my favorite.

Goby would do fine too since it'd hang out at the very bottom of the tank, and again, not compete for space.

Edited - oops, just noticed you have tail spot - a swimmer. OK then, get a percher like a bi-color blenny.

Hello,
What about a Rainfords Goby? I saw one at my LFS swimming in a large tank with a tailspot blenny.

BTW-My blenny doesnt swim much. He perches on the rocks and just stares at me. If I am not in the room, he goes back into the rocks and sits on them.

Maybe a goby that sits on the bottom would be best? Something that wont mind a small tank. I like the yellow watchman gobys, but all 4 have died.

Thanks!
Matt
