Update

My scooter Blenny died. I didn't see him today and found him getting eaten by snails. After closer inspection, I found he had a collapsed stomach. He must've not been eating his food, i definitely saw him eating prepared, must have been spitting it out behind my back or something. Well, now I only have 2 fish, and the very first death in my tank... Ever. I knew it was a harder fish to take care of but I really thought I had it happy, eating well (I thought), always out, no symptoms of starving. I also have plenty of pods, is it possible that they aren't being carried up because of the sponge on the return pump? If anyone could help, I would really appreciate it

Everything else is thriving and healthy, well I think so anyways..

Ya I was pretty happy with how I was doing also. I'm really not sure what I should do with my tank now, it has 2 fish lol. I'm just going to try to get everything perfect before any fish is replaced. I really liked that scooter too, such personality.

I think it's a little big for my tank, sure are pretty though. I was thinking a big old yellow watchmen goby whenever the time comes. I need to be cautious of the 6 line though.

But yours is pretty long, i dunno i think it would work. Plus it is semi agressive so it could hold its own against the 6 line.

I dunno...yellow watchmans never seem to do well

Ya.. Not sure. I would definitely want something relatively small, preferably active. I was thinking I would have less aggression issues if I was to have something that swims on the ground rather than in the current.

I'm thinking the Midas Blenny will be the next fish.. Anyone know anything about these? Ive been reading up on them and I don't see anything that seems our of the ordinary with them. I'll probably get it in a month or two if it is what I choose.

I e had one for a while now. Eats everything I put in the tank - mainly perches on a cliff and hangs out - awesome swimmer - not aggressive at all. My favorite fish in my 54. Does awesome feats of swimming in and through the rockwork. Very cool. Highly recommend.
