I've had a Scooter Blenny that has been acting fine for the past 3 months. He hops all over the tank eating copepods and sifting through the sand. Today he has been hanging out in one spot of the tank just laying on the sand. Is this normal behavior? He is alive because he moves every once in a while, but he seems like like this one spot today.
I checked my water parameters 2 days ago and they were the following:
Unless he is searching around at night, I don't think he's been eating in the past 24 hours. He's just kinda laying in one corner of the tank. He's still alive, though, because he changes his position if you get too close to the tank and it startles him.
You may want to get some extra pods, sounds like he has decimated his natural food source. I had on in my 4 year old 55 and he still starved. It even looked like he was eating frozen, but still didn't make it.
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....
Yeah, I guess that is the last time that I fully trust the advice of my LFS. I went in there looking for a new fish a few months ago and they recommended him. Next time I'll do my research in advance and go in with a specific fish in mind.
