    I have 2 of these from Alfa... They are very curious and secretive at the same time...

    They disappeared for 2 weeks when they were first released in my vivarium. Now, they each found a cave and hide and will stake out there, poking their heads out and explore the tank once in a while... They are like tiny aquatic dogs... Very cute!

    Heard they do better in a brackish tank... Hope they will live long in the vivarium...

    Oh, sorry for the blur pics...

















    PS: The bettas are the feeder bettas I mentioned earlier in another thread. Pretty, right? Wasted...

    Ahem... Bad habits ah, you guys... I am sharing the pics ah, not selling ah...

    Anyway, I got them from Alfa as he was running out of tanks for a new fish. He got them from the old Choong Sua Aquarium before it closed down. I will update when I heard of any LFS selling...

    Yes, it is a fin nipper... The older betta has tattered fins...

    But it had recovered and the sufferer now is a female guppy with a large fan tail...

    Guess the blennies are taking turns to nip...

    hi guys
    just bought a pair of these... have them in my freshwater community tank now. Any idea on what's their diet? Oh btw, with one of my blennies turning very dark colored, is that a sign of stress?
    The LFS i bought these blennies from put kempantang
    (spelt correctly? ) leaves in their tanks... should i do the same?

    thanks X)

    Ketapang?
    Weird... They are brackish water... Ketapang makes the water soft... Doesn't seem to be really required...

    Think your blenny is stressed... Hope they were slowly acclimatised before you put them into your tank...

    Nope, Gummy... It is patrolling and the betta was just passing by... I had not witnessed the nipping as they avoid patrolling when they see me... I have to remain still and wait for them to appear... And it is not regular...

    Oh, for those who are still interested, these fish can be found in a pair per pack at C328 as 'Tiger Gobies'... If stock runs out, please ask Uncle when they will bring in...
