New fish for the Reef

I added a couple more fish to my reef tank this weekend. I picked up a Canary Blenny and a Firefish. I had planned on adding a Midas Blenny, but my lfs never got any in...so I quit asking and just went with what I could find. The firefish was on sale, so I snatched it up.

Here are pics!

Canary Blenny

Pics look great, nice additions. I would recommend that you go get another firefish as the single one you have now might start to hide without a buddy.

Thanks!

Yeah I was afraid of that. A friend recommended I get 2 as well. So far, this guy is out and about....but if he starts to hide, I have no problem going to get another.

I love the canary. He's considered one of the fang blennys. Hope you kow not to hold him in your bare hand or in the net with your hand surrounding him. Has a nasty bite and it's venemous. Not to worry unless you handle him that way. Its bite is meant for other fish that may try to eat him. Mine never even thought about attacking my hand when it was in the tank.

He's a curious one. I love the way he hovers and checks stuff out. He'll grab a spot in the corner of the tank in the open and sleep there, maybe halfway up the top. Great fish IMO.

Thanks for the info Ray! I had not read about their bite being venomous....so I will definitely be careful with him.

I love how curious he is as well! I haven't put my hand in the tank yet (since I bought him), so it will be interesting to see how he reacts. But just him checking things out in the tank is really cute.
