when the blenny nailed him, the blenny took off a scale. his left eye looks a little cloudy. i made food available but nothing.

So what exactly happens to him? Bullying? Did you buy him sick?

I lost my 1st 6 line too... Just some fish aren't meant to make it. I know it sucks, but take ur time with this new tank. I think that's part of the reason I lost everything but the flame. I sorry if u lose the lil guy.

Yeah, but think of all it has to do to really establish itself. Cycling can't be easy, then u start throwing in fish after fish to something that just got new bacteria and set up. Like asking a new born to eat a steak. Go with good, hardy fish for now. This is just my experience and opinion. I could be wrong. Look how long it took before I could keep a tang.. Lost 2 before these guys came along. And u know my other loses... Just don't wanna see u go through the same thing, Jesse...
