  1. Default bicolor blenny hanging by heater??


    0 Not allowed!
    Hello everyone. I just purchased a bicolor blenny 2 day's ago. Yesterday he was fine and active and today he is hanging out by the heater. If I move the heater he will come down and swim around for a minute then go right baco to the heater. Is this normal? The tank is completely cycled and has been running for over a month and a half. Ammonia is at 0. P.H. is at 8.3. Water temp is 76 degree's. Any help is appriciated. Thank you.

    Temp is on the chilly side. Bump it up to 79 or 80 deg f.

    Hmm still strange behavior for 76 degrees since I don't think that's really that cold... what other tank mates do you have in there? Is the blenny hiding behind the heater or just swimming around it?
    55g Long --> After 18mo of doing well the tank crashed during moving. Most likely cause: Flatworm Die-off... won't start another until after moving... Likely not until late 2013

    20g Long --> currently concoting a build plan

    Check out the journal to follow my 20g SW tank

    "Take a chance, because you never know how perfect some things can turn out" -- unknown

    76 deg could be even chillier if an inaccurate thermometer is reading high? Its simple to test,turn it up a few notches and see if the fish starts hanging out lower.

    True true, I mean that is the obvious answer lol fish hangs out in hottest part of tank, make tank hotter lol I just thought I'd poke around at other answers lol

    76 seems a tad low to me as well, I have all my tanks at 78. None of my critters hang at the outputs (warmest area) as I have nothing but inline heaters or in the refugium area...
    Life is tough, it's even tougher if your stupid.
    If your not angry, your not paying attention...
