Bi Colour Blenny

I notice my new Bi Colour Blenny changes colour whenever I add Calcium, KH or in fact make any changes to the tank. He gets white stripes and white patches at the corners of his mouth and his little head horns go white. Once the tank balances again it goes. Is this normal?

I`m not reall sure but I guess rapid or big changes in water parameters could play a big part in that. Why not just do PWC`s to see if that corrects your water parameters first?

BTW welcome to AA

I agree with Mike.
Do you have test kits for what you are dosing?
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....
