    So I had thought I wanted a midas blenny but I went into my LFS and they had some of the tiniest/cutest bicolour blennies I have ever seen. So I grabbed one that is quite unique with a black and white stripe running along each side of its body. He is about 1 inch long.

    He has taken up residence in a powerhead that was turned off to get him used to the flow of my tank...I will be removing it once he decides to adventure out of it lol. He eats great and is so cute!

    I will post pics tomorrow.

    Those little Bi-Colors are awesome little fish.:D
    Congratulations.
    If it was me,I'd leave that powerhead in there for him to call home.It'll help keep him from stressing.

    Lol!! I always call all of my fish boy names...but my grandma gave me the money to get a new fish and she said she would like me to name it Gertrude!

    So I guess its a girl/she...so anywhere where I said he is should be she.

    Too funny!!!
