    Blenny gone :(

    Well my lawnmower blenny has been missing for about a month now. He used to perch on the rocks, but had went into hiding and hasn't come out in weeks. I haven't seen any remains, so I assume he died and was devoured by my crab/worm population.. poor thing.. I really liked that guy

    Jeeze must be a full moon, i got home to find the same deal /w one of my chromis

    Consolations on your loss, have you checked the sump? Mine occasionally makes that trip and his camoflage makes him a hard one to find.

    he's probably on vacation from tiring of eating algea all day.
    on a serious note, How big is your tank and how big is the blenny?

    Right when I saw the thread title, then I thought perhaps he's just hiding. But I guess if you say it's been a month that's abit too long. Too bad.

    I have a 3" (big!) algae blenny in the 30G tank and sometimes when I came home it'll still take me a few minutes to find him... even tho he's already sitting RIGHT IN FRONT of the tank... he's sneaky when not moving.
    Hardwares: 50G reef tank, 30G sump & ~55lb Indo/Fiji LR. Finnex 36"x4 T5 lights, Coralife Superskimmer 220g, Mag9.5 return and SEIO820+MJ600 PH.
    Corals: zoosss, mushrooms, hammer, torch, fogsprawn, blasto, crocea clam, RBTA
    Fish: Percular clown PJ cardinal, royal gramma, yellow watchman goby, 3x chromis.

    I have a 90 Gallon/ 100 Lbs of LR. All of my fish get along great. I have 2 cleaner shrimp, a bunch of snails(turbo green, Astrea, Nass. ect) and blue leg hermit crabs. I used to have to look around, usually finding him perched on or in between a rock. He was small, only about 2 " long.

    I currently have:

    1 Yellow Tang
    2 osc. Clowns
    1 Royal Gramma
    5 Green Chromis
    2 Cleaner shrimp

    and a bunch of softies and frogspawn

    None of which show any agression towards the other fish at all.
