Starry Blenny

Hello! I am getting closer to starting my cycling. I am in love with starry blennys. I just can't get enough of those little faces! I have only ever seen tanks with one. Are you able to keep more than one together? And what is their favorite food? That is the one fish that is a must for me!

Maybe I should add that I am doing a fish less cycle. Don't want you to think I planned on sticking a poor little blenny in there during that time!

There shouldn't be more than one blenny in a tank usually. They would fight if you got two. Starry blennies are peaceful, but some people say they pick on their fish.

My starry blenny is pretty aggressive. All the research said peaceful but mine is quite the opposite. He attack anything that comes near his caves and won't allow jawfish or gobys in the tank (75gl).

Mine will not accept prepared so I don't clean my back glass

The lfs said if I wanted a goby to add him before the blenny. Thanks for the help!

Okay, that would work.. I'd prolly do it at the same time and both of equaling size.

My blenny has attacked me on occasion also while working in the tank.

My starry is peaceful. He's a big pig. Has never attacked me-thank goodness!! He has grabbed the tubes on the Nassarius a few times, but I think he bought the tube was a blood worm. He LOVES bloodworms and doesn't get them very often. He didn't actually hurt the snails, though.

That is awesome beengirl. What is the order you added him with your stock? I just think they are so funny and fun to watch. Every time I see one I can't stop smiling. My husband said our blenny will be named "Lenny", which will be really funny if it is a girl.

Sounds like a grumpy one! That is good idea to do the same size/same time. Thank you!
