scooter blenny ques?

I have the cutest black and white scooter blenny in my tank. I'd like to get two more. My question is, are they considered cuc or must I count them as far as fish per gallon?

They eat and poop. It's bio-load. Please do not get 2 more. Some reading for you.

Well I think he's assuming that they will wipe out your copepod population fairly quickly and starve, what size is your tank and how many lbs of LR do you have?

My tank is 50gal. I think I'll keep him alone. I don't want to add any more bio load. He's cute and I enjoy watching him. Thanks for reponding to my post.

And, I did read the links Austin'sdad provided. Thanks a lot.
