I read before that blennies don't do well together, but maybe that's for the same sized ones. If you're going with any blenny I'd recommend the midas. I probably said that before. The striped blenny is pretty cool, being that it has fangs. Instead of replacing the wrasse with a blenny why not get a fairy wrasse like a Lubbocks or McCosker's?

Never heard so those, I'll look in to them. Since I'm so limited on fish, I've been looking for more o the brightly colored fish on the nano scale. I thought Midas would get to big for my tank?

I have the Lubbocks wrasse and it's very colorful. Liveaquaria doesn't do it justice, so that's why I recommended it. Liveaquaria can be a bit high on their min. tank recommendations. As long as you're not overstocked I think it would be fine to have a fairy wrasse in a 25 gallon tank. Midas blennies are pretty active, but don't need a huge tank.

Cool, alright. I just want 2-3 colorful fish. So that should work out
