So, the tomini tang was introduced into the tank 10-days ago. Not quite settled, but less people shy everyday...also very protective of his area. Otherwise, apparently healthy. He's the only tang and has taken up residency with the primary areas of the reef.
The Tribal Blenny was introduced 3.5 days ago. He's being kept out of primary areas of the tank by the tang. The tang has been aggressive toward the blenny, seen chasing him away from rock feeding areas as well as chasing him whenever in sight.
The blenny has been successful in taking refuge in several small openings in the pukani rock. At the moment, they seem to have a stand-off or truce as long as the blenny keeps his distance.
That all said, below is blenny before and after pictures resulting from yesterday's battles... you can see the blenny was deep black head to tail (save tribal markings). No sign of ich but he's a fast mover and is mostly in hiding.
My concern is the lack of coloration.
Please not that post injury, where blenny is black photos are not representative - meaning where black he is still black.
So, area of concern is where black is no longer..
..now totally pale...not white..simply lacking black shope that makes sense).
Photos of the tang to follow.
