Bicolored Blenny???

Has anyone had any experience with these? I'm thinking about adding one to my tank.

I don't have any personal experience with them, but I have only heard good things about the bicolored and midas blennies. Very active and fun fish.

I have two in my 125. Both turned all black (or is dark blue?). I had one that died after 5 years, so these guys are relatively new (about a year).

They each have their favorite rock holes to dart in and out of, but also dart from rock to rock. They let the big fish grab the nori first, them come for their nibbles. When I had only 1 it was probably the most entertaining fish to watch. Two more than doubles the fun.

The two occasionly squabble, but that lasts about 30 seconds before one them stops chasing the other.

If you have a 30 gallon or larger I highly reccomend this fish.

I agree. Great fish with loads of personality IMO. As do most blennies I've had.

Cmor, do you know why it changed colors and if this is common? I've done some looking around on the internet and haven't seen that as a common occurence.

There`s alot of blennies that change colors. Kind of blend in with the scenery. I have a black sail fin blenny that changes color all the time.

Ok, that sounds weird, unique, and interesting. I look forward to seeing how my little blenny acts in my setup...

Mine is very territorial and very hilarious. If a hermit crab climbs near his hole he'll bite its shell until it falls off. I couldn't imagine my tank without it.

So I got my bi color today and it isn't even bicolored. It is all black/that blackish color... Will it ever change to the bicolor?
